Police are in possession of a surveillance video that shows a group of people using the credit cards stolen from cars in the Nichols Hills, Okla., club’s parking lot. Club employees were able to see the suspect’s vehicle and license plate numbers, which were determined to be stolen as well.
Police say they want to talk to a group of people in surveillance video in connection with a string of smash and grab burglaries from the parking lot at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club in Nichols Hills, Okla., the Oklahoma City-based KFOR NewsChannel 4 reported.
Detective Casey Nix said the video comes from different stores around town where a victim’s stolen credit cards were used, KFOR reported.
“On two occasions employees were able to see the suspect’s vehicle and actually get tag numbers on the vehicle,” said Nix. “Those tag numbers were later determined to be stolen.”
Within the past two weeks, thieves also stole a laptop, a cell phone, a hand gun and three thousand dollars in cash, all visible from the cars’ windows, KFOR reported.
“They have the nerve to go over there in the country club parking lot with valet people around and people coming and going,” resident Greg Story said.
Story lives across the street from the country club and said the parking lot has been targeted before. The club’s security has even used his driveway to stake it out, KFOR reported.
“I went out there and said well what’s going on?” says Story. “He said we’re watching because of the car burglaries.”
Detective Nix has one solution to the club’s problems if thieves come back, KFOR reported.
“Always lock your vehicle,” says Nix. “And of course just don’t leave valuables inside the vehicle, especially visible.”
However, Story said the members had a right to think their things would be safe, KFOR reported.
“Because it should be. It should be safe,” said Story. “You should be able to go over there and valet park your car and be safe.”
