Oklahoma City Police have released surveillance photos of a man suspected of stealing a truck, a trailer and several items from two businesses.

During the first burglary in January, someone stole $50,000 worth of merchandise from Western Lawns, including a company vehicle, a 16-foot-trailer and commercial-grade lawn equipment. The person also vandalized company vehicles and trailers.

Police believed the same person was involved in a burglary at JA Oilfield Manufacturing in southwest Oklahoma City. This time, various tools and magnetic "JA Oilfield" stickers and signs were stolen.

Police recently discovered surveillance video from an Oklahoma City fast food restaurant that showed the suspect driving the truck stolen from Western Lawns, but it had one of the JA Oilfield magnetic signs placed over the original company's logo.

Police are asking the public to take a good look at the photos. If you recognize the man in the pictures or have any information about the burglaries, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
