The report came in to Mustang police dispatchers about 8:30 a.m. Nov. 29, and officers were sent to the 300 block of South Symes Lane on a report of an unsecured business.

“Upon arrival officers found the garage door open on the east side of the business; the business was unoccupied,” Capt. John Gibson stated in the initial incident report. “The owners were contacted, and it was discovered that a burglary had taken place and numerous items were taken.”

Loss from the apparent burglary was estimated at $18,326, Gibson stated in his report.

Officers have also asked for the public’s assistance with two larceny’s recorded by cameras at a car wash located in the 300 block of North Trade Center Terrace.

The first took place Oct. 14; the second was recorded Nov. 24, Detective William Carpenter reported. If anyone has any information concerning the vehicles or alleged suspects, contact Carpenter at 405-376-7713.

In other cases, police are looking for a man on a possible bank fraud complaint. Officer Kevin Connolly reported he was dispatched to a banking institution located in the 900 block of East state Highway 152 at about 11:27 a.m. Dec. 2. There, the officer learned a man entered the branch shortly before 3:30 p.m. Sept. 17 and deposited a $3,000 check; the man then traveled to an Oklahoma City branch and withdrew $1,500 from that deposit – which for some reason did not have a hold placed on it.

Bank officials subsequently determined the bank account number listed on the check was fraudulent.

To contact the department with any information or questions, call 405-376-2488 or email [email protected]. The department is located at 650 East state Highway 152.
