Ada —

A brazen thief hit Walmart Saturday morning and made off with several thousand dollars worth of electronics. 

The crime occurred in the pre-dawn hours. Walmart loss prevention officers said a woman stole 47 iPhones during the robbery, according to a police report. Loss prevention officers notified Ada police after the incident.

“After watching the video, the unknown black female entered in the north entrance at 2:31 a.m. and broke the window to the phone case at 2:37 a.m.,” Ada Police Officer Kevin Heck said in a report, “leaving through the same north exit at 2:43 a.m. It is believed that the unknown female had a person waiting in a vehicle for her to exit the business.”

Heck said the vehicle is described as a dark-colored Chrysler 300. All evidence and information, including video footage and still photos, were turned over to detectives. The footage and photos were unavailable for release by press time Monday. Anyone wishing to report information about the crime can call CrimeStoppers at 33CATCH — 332-2824 and remain anonymous.
