Approximately 100 units at 10 self-storage facilities in Tulsa, Okla., have been broken into in the past three weeks, and police detectives are on the case. More than $100,000 in property has been stolen thus far, and police believe the crooks are targeting other businesses.
Because the burglars strike at night, they have so far been able to avoid being caught on tape, according to Sergeant Brandon Watkins, who heads the Tulsa Police Department Burglary Unit. The culprits are generally entering each site through the back, cutting a hole in the fence and then cutting locks off of units. Watkins thinks they have also identified which facilities have cameras and which don’t.
Anyone with information that may assist the investigation is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918.595.COPS. Tips leading to arrest may be rewarded with cash.
