TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa Police are searching for the person who broke into a T-Mobile store near 71st St. and Lewis Ave. early Wednesday morning.
The thief was able to pry open the door of a neighboring business. From there, Police said the suspect was able to make a hole in the sheetrock of the neighboring business’s wall, and climb inside the T-Mobile.
Employees at the T-Mobile told FOX23 that the thief only got away with less than $400 worth of stolen merchandise, but the damage to the store was extensive.
Police officers said that a motion alarm did go off Wednesday morning, but it didn’t last long. Officers explained that sometimes these alarms go off at random, and without any evidence of a robbery in progress.
Without damage to an entrance or the T-Mobile store’s window, police said that the robbery could have gone without notice from employees until much later Wednesday morning.
If anyone has information, police ask they call Tulsa Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
