Metro bars are on the lookout for a thief who targets their Jukeboxes.

Over the past month, four bars have been hit in the metro, including two Monday morning.

"Hopefully he'll slip up," says bartender Zac Keller with The Store Club at 50th and Portland.

The Store Club, along with the Henry Hudson's off NW Expressway in NW OKC was also a victim Monday morning. The suspect breaks windows or will pry open doors.

According to businesses, the man uses a crowbar to break into the Jukeboxes.

"Usually it's upwards of a thousand dollars," says Keller about the weekly jukebox total.

The Store Club and Henry Hudson's had surveillance cameras which caught the suspect early Monday morning.  He was wearing something over his face, so he's hard to identify.

About a month ago, The Porthole at 39th and Portland and Lumpy's near NW Expressway and MacArthur also had their Jukeboxes broken into.
