The Tulsa Police Department is looking for a larceny suspect who is targeting downtown Tulsa area businesses as well as area hospitals.
Police say the suspect is walking into business buildings, approaching unoccupied desks or common areas and stealing any items of value.
Employees have approached the suspect and they told police the suspect told them he was there to fill out an employment application or asked to use the restroom. Stolen items include iPhones, iPads, iPods, wallets and purses.
Police say the suspect wore a jacket with an image similar to an image of Al Pacino from the film “Scarface.” It is also believed he uses the city buses for transportation. Police are asking anyone who noticed items missing from their workplace and noticed a suspicious male in the building file a police report if they have not already.
Police also remind people to secure belongings while at work by locking them in a desk or behind a locked door.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or text TIP918 to CRIMES.
