— 'Twas the season to commit burglary for a woman wanted by the Edmond Police Department.

On Dec. 26, officers responded to a report that a woman forcefully entered the Goodwill store at 48 E 15th and tried to break into the safe and two vending machines.

The officer said there were signs the back door had been pried open. The safe handle and electronic keypad had been broken off and there was “significant damage” to the vending machines, according to the report.

Video surveillance shows a brown-haired woman strolling through aisles with her hands behind her back or sifting through bins.

Another video shows the woman wearing a white sweatshirt and riffling through office papers. About halfway through the burglar stops, looks toward the surveillance camera and smiles. All of the surveillance videos are available on NewsOK.com

The intruder spent more than an hour in the store, according to the report, and police said there is no way to know specifically what she stole because most of it was from the donation area.

Edmond police asks that anyone with information about the burglary contact detective Sharla Bradley at 359-4443.
