Sand Springs police search for serial burglar

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. – A Sand Springs woman said she came face to face with the man police believe to be a serial burglar. They want help identifying him.

Police said the man has hit numerous times. They think he could be connected to even more crime throughout Tulsa County.

The woman, who asked to not be identified, said she saw the man staring back at her through the window and holding a bat. She said she pointed a gun at him and told him to leave.

Her aunt, who lives just down the street, said she was at the house in a matter of minutes.

See the surveillance video here.

“She was still screaming and hollering and crying. She was saying that she was afraid she would have to shoot him to protect her daughter,” Ms. Mullin said.

Police said the man could be connected to other crimes and they were stunned when surveillance video showed him get away on a motorcycle.

“We think he’s looking for small items he can take; guns, cash, jewelry. Things he can conceal on his person and then flee on the motorcycle,” Deputy Chief Mike Carter said.

Mullin said the entire area is on high alert.

“Everybody is afraid. At night every noise you hear you go to the door,” Mullin said.

Police do not know if the man is armed with a gun, but they do consider him dangerous. They are welcoming any tip no matter how big or small.

  • A woman is arrested for child endangerment after her young son is found wandering through an apartment complex. We're told Jana Clem had forgotten to lock the door after she took her prescription medications Thursday at the Chapel Ridge Apartments. Someone called Rogers County deputies after finding the 4-year old alone. Clem said she didn't realize that the boy had left their apartment.
  • A Tulsa man is dead after pointing a gun at a police officer during a traffic stop. We're told 52-year old Joshua Daniels was shot early Thursday near Neosho, Missouri after he tried to drive away from a police traffic stop for a second time. Neosho police say Daniels may have been intoxicated.
  • Rogers County deputies are investigating the report of a woman leaving her two children inside a parked car during the day Thursday. We're told Crystal Shell had left the car operating with the air conditioner on and parked at the county courthouse. Deputies informed her that, even so, her actions were too dangerous. When deputies ran an identity check on Shell, she was arrested for having outstanding warrants.
  • Yes, the airlines are taking what many agree is well-deserved flack lately, but passengers are not all angels. The Telegraph reports that flight attendants list some of passengers’ most annoying traits on a Facebook group. Those traits include taking forever to decide what drink you want (especially when you've seen the cart coming down the aisle for 10 minutes). Physically poking a flight attendant to get their attention, instead of just saying, 'excuse me,' is a major annoyance. Asking to borrow a pen for customs forms doesn’t go over well. And handing flight attendants, tissues, toothpicks, and (believe it or not) dirty diapers, actually happens. Put 'em in the barf bag, attendants say. You can read more about the story from the Telegraph here.
  • A rare baby Amur tiger cub at a zoo in Philadelphia was neglected by its mother after its birth earlier this month. The cub named Zoya, which means 'life' in Russian, is being sent to the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden. Zoya will integrate with a tiger cub litter there. The Philadelphia Zoo says 10-year-old Koosaka gave birth July 10 to a litter of five cubs.  Two were stillborn and one was accidentally injured by the mother and died.  The zoo says the mother never showed maternal behavior toward the remaining cubs and they were moved to the zoo's animal hospital, where the fourth died. Amur tigers, also called Siberian tigers, are endangered in the wild. They're found in eastern Russia and northeastern China.
