Owasso Police on the Lookout after String of Burglaries

Posted: Updated:

Owasso police are advising citizens to be on the lookout after a string of recent burglaries in the area that they believe could involve the same suspects.

Police say that on Friday, two to three suspicious black males were seen near the Hillside addition at 114th Street North and Mingo Road at 8 a.m. A resident said the suspects were "casing the neighborhood."

The resident who called police said the suspects then came to his house asking if they could borrow some gasoline. But the resident told the black males to leave. Police were unable to locate the individuals after canvassing the surrounding areas.

Owasso police then received word of a home burglary at 10:30 a.a.m.riday involving two black males in red shorts and white shirts running out of a home in the Elm Creek housing addition near 119th East Avenue and 79th Street North.

A neighbor said the suspects were seen carrying electronics, power tools and a chain saw out of the residence. The neighbor also told police the individuals got into a older model light or white SUV, which could possibly be an older model Jeep Cherokee. It which was driven by an additional black male.

Officers found that a hunting rifle had also been taken from the residence and that the rear door had been kicked open. Once again, however, officers canvassed the area but were unable to locate the suspects.

Then, around 5 p.m. Friday, Owasso officers received a report of another home burglary in the New Brunswick addition near 97th Street North and Mingo Road. The victim had returned home and found jewelry, electronic and firearms stolen from his residence. The burglary occurred sometime between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Unrelated to the earlier robberies, Owasso police also reported two instances of possible attempted burglaries. A Coffee Creek Apartments resident told police that at 8 p.m. Friday he saw three white males through a peephole that were trying to enter his bedroom window. He told police he started to make a lot of noise, which caused the suspects to flee.

At approximately 4 a.m. Saturday, a resident told police he heard his garage door open. The resident lives near 96th Street North and 101st East Avenue. The resident told police he spooked away the intruder, who had entered his garage. Police were unable to locate any suspects in these incidents.

Owasso police want individuals to be alert of any suspicious vehicles or other activity in these areas. Residents can alert Owasso police of suspicious activity at 918-272-2244 or through 911.
