Hospital burglary suspect at large | Crime
EDMOND, Okla. – A mysterious intruder was seen wandering through a restricted area of Integris Health in Edmond just before 6 p.m. Monday.
Investigators said he navigated through a stairwell and attempted to get inside a locked office door on the second floor.
A woman working after business hours was startled by the intruder.
“It was a secure area on the second floor,” Edmond Police Spokesperson Jenny Monroe said. “She heard someone jiggling the handle. She looked outside and saw a man with a knife or flat screw driver trying to get into the door. She did yell ‘Hello’ and it scared him off.”
The man vanished empty-handed before hospital security could track him down.
Police said this is not his first attempt.
In fact, a suspect matching the exact same description targeted Integris Edmond in June, and an Oklahoma City hospital in July.
Authorities suspect he’s rifling through empty offices for quick cash.
“They would have to know what they’re looking for,” Monroe said. “Depending on the office, there could be petty cash.
Integris officials said the intruder did steal about $50 in cash from one recent heist.
Police and hospital administrators would like to identify this mystery man and question him about the recent rash of burglaries.
