TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa County deputies are looking for the people responsible for what they are calling an unusual break-in at a north Tulsa convenience store.
The suspects cut the lock on the breaker box at the Fastop near Pine and Yale just after 5 a.m. Wednesday and flipped the power off, according to detectives.
The store manager said the suspects then pried their way into a back door by moving a large cooler holdings drinks that was blocking that door.
According to detectices, the suspects then loaded up with cigarettes before getting the safe from underneath the register.
The manager of Fastop says the safe was a couple of hundred pounds, so he believes several people were involved.
Deputies agree more than one person likely committed the crime. They said the suspects left behind burglary tools at the scene.
The business is now dealing with the loss and damage, and they say that they also lost out on gas sales Wednesday, because the thieves messed up the register’s wiring system when they pulled it out.
