An Oklahoma City woman is facing numerous burglary charges after police said she admitted to a string of home and vehicle burglaries.
Megan Brewer-Cook, 21, was arrested on June 29 and booked into the Cleveland County Detention Center. She was booked on four complaints of burglary and one complaint of attempted burglary.
Numerous surveillance cameras captured Brewer-Cook attempting to break into numerous homes in the Rockport Neighborhood near Southwest 119th and Interstate 44.
Oklahoma City police were called to the area when Brewer-Cook crashed her vehicle into several mailboxes.
“She made entry through a doggie door,” said MSgt. Gary Knight of the Oklahoma City Police Department. “Another one she tried to remove a screen and climbed through a window. She was confronted by the homeowner which forced her to flee.”
In another incident home security cameras caught Brewer-Cook in the middle of the night on June 28, breaking into a home through a window. She rifled through the owners’ things, leaving bloody footprints on the floor.
Cameras captured her walking out the front door with stolen property and leave the scene.
“You’re breaking into their home and they’re in fear of their life, they’re afraid you’re going to do something to harm them or their family, that can have a very tragic outcome,” said Knight. “We’re fortunate that nobody was hurt during these burglaries.”
Jewelry, many victims said, was taken from their homes.
Home security cameras helped police tremendously.
“There is an old saying that evidence doesn’t lie, especially video evidence,” said Knight. “You have a front row seat to everything that is going on there.”
Brewer-Cook is behind bars in Cleveland County on a $10,000 bond.
It’s unclear if Brewer-Cook was under the influence during this crime spree.
