A home security camera recorded a woman walking up to the front door of a home in southwest Oklahoma City just minutes before someone burglarized the house.

A man called police on June 21 to his home in the 2700 block of S.W. 130th Court. He told officers his burglary alarm sounded around 3:30 p.m., but he assumed his wife had accidentally set it off so he told the alarm company not to send police.

When the man arrived home about 20 minutes later, he discovered a glass door leading to his master bedroom had been shattered, but the door itself was still locked. Someone had ransacked the room, going through drawers and the closet.

The man told officers about $20,000 in cash and jewelry had been stolen.

Police reviewed the homeowner's security footage and discovered video of a pickup truck with a lawn trailer, driving along the west side of the house. A few minutes later, a man is seen inside the house peaking around the corner. The camera only captured the back of the man's head and did not show his face.

At nearly the same time, a woman walking a white bulldog is seen approaching the home's front door. She rings the doorbell then leaves.

Police have released pictures of the woman. They are asking anyone who recognizes her, or knows anything about the burglary, to call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
