The Norman Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify one of four males believed to be involved in a recent burglary.

Norman police responded to a report of a burglary in the 2900 block of Meadow Avenue at approximately 4:36 p.m. Thursday. Once on scene, officers made contact with the homeowner who stated that four unknown males came to her residence posing as electricians. One of the males was wearing a reflective vest and hard hat. The males told the homeowner that a neighbor was experiencing electrical issues, and that they needed to check her home for the same issues.

Before the homeowner could respond, the four males entered the home without her permission. One of the men kept the homeowner in the living room, while the other men went to other rooms of the residence acting as if they were checking for electrical issues. The men took jewelry and cash from the various rooms before leaving the home. The males left in what is believed to be a white 2016 Ford F150 Extended Cab Truck. The license plate of the vehicle is unknown.

A nearby neighbor caught one of the males and the suspect vehicle on surveillance camera as they approached their home.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the male in the video or the incident is asked to contact the NPD Criminal Investigations Division at 405-366-5440 or Norman Crime Stoppers at 405-366-STOP (7867).

Norman police also encourage residents to never open their door or allow unknown individuals into their residence. If anyone sees suspicious behavior or individuals matching this description in their neighborhood, please call 911 or the non-emergency number, 405-321-1444, immediately.
