Oklahoma City police look for woman with tattoos in assisted living home thefts
A woman is wanted for stealing a wallet containing $350 from an assisted living home resident. Oklahoma City police think the woman also stole items from unlocked rooms in other assisted living facilities.
Oklahoma City police are looking for a woman in conjunction with thefts at three assisted living homes in the metro area.
Police describe the woman as about 5 feet 10 inches tall with tattoos on her right arm.
On July 11, police were called to the Hefner Mansion, 7700 W Hefner Road, on a report the woman had stolen money from a resident's purse.
Resident Lavon Thorne, 76, said she was watching television on her couch when she saw her door open and a hand reach in and take her wallet from her purse sitting near the door. She told police there was $350 in the wallet.
Witnesses who saw the woman in the facility said she was wearing a short-sleeved shirt and a yellow broomstick skirt.
An employee said the same type of burglary happened at two other assisted living centers. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300.
