Ada —

Ada police are requesting the assistance of area residents in helping solve a burglary that took place June 29.

A building located in the 900 block of South Mississippi, owned by Eric Wayne Todd of Ada, was reported burglarized between Friday, June 28, at 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. the next day. Todd told police he was at the building, which he uses for storage, on Friday morning. When he returned Saturday, Todd said he discovered burglars had entered through a west window, ransacked the place and pulled copper wiring out of the walls. 

The suspects were reportedly unable to open the garage door and left the copper wiring near the south garage door inside the building.

According to the police report the south walk-in door was apparently opened from the inside and left unlocked by the alleged burglars.

Todd told police he believed the suspected burglars had planned to return for the copper. 

However, what the burglars did not know was that their first attempt to steal the copper wiring was captured on video by a security camera.

Anyone with information about this incident or recognizes the persons in the video (www.adanews.com) is asked to contact Crimestoppers at 580-33-CATCH or the Ada Police Department at 436-6300.
