Oklahoma City police are asking for the public's help to find a man wanted for questioning in connection with two burglaries last month.

Police said the manager of Western Lawns, 14900 N Sara Road, reported a company vehicle, a 16-foot trailer and commercial grade lawn equipment were stolen from the business between Jan. 13-16. Additionally, several company vehicles and trailers were vandalized.

Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said the equipment was worth more than $50,000.

She said investigators think the man also was involved in a burglary at JA Oilfield Manufacturing Inc., 2101 SW 67, during the same period.

According to the police report, employees returned Jan. 14 and noticed a gate lock had been cut. On Jan. 16, another employee noticed several items were missing from his work truck.

The items included various tools and magnetic company stickers and signs.

Police released two surveillance photos Monday that show a man driving a JA Oilfield Manufacturing vehicle through a drive-thru restaurant.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300.
