Oklahoma City police have released surveillance photos of two men who may know something about a string of burglaries of Paysite machines at metro 7-Eleven stores.

Throughout July, at least four Paysite machines were burglarized in Oklahoma City and Moore. People use the Paysite machines to make pay cash payments for gas, phone or electric bills. More than $10,000 was stolen from machines at stores located at 3000 S. May Ave. and 3624 N. Penn.

On July 28, a clerk working at the 7-Eleven at 1245 S. 29th Street said the alarm on the Paysite machine sounded at 12:45 p.m. The clerk saw a man run from the machine carrying a pry bar. When police arrived, they noticed an area on the machine that appeared to be loose, but no money had been taken.

Police have released surveillance photos of two men who may be connected to the burglaries. They're asking the public to take a close look at the pictures and help investigators identify the men.

If you have any information about the case, call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300.
