Wait until you see the fridge !
Oklahoma City police have released body camera footage showing officers as they reportedly caught a man “cold-handed” stealing a refrigerator.
Police reports show that just before 3 p.m. Oct. 22 officers were called to the 1600 block of NW 35 Street in reference to a burglary. Officers made contact with the man near NW 32 and Blackwelder as he was pushing a refrigerator on a dolly down the road.
Danny Mainus said he’s part of the neighborhood watch group on NW 35th St. near Classen Blvd. So he thought it would be best to call police when he saw the man with the refrigerator on his street.
The man told police that he found the fridge on the side of the road left out for “big trash pickup”. An officer opened the fridge and found it to be full of items and that the items were still cold.
A witness told police they saw the man wheeling a black stove down the road, before coming back to a home in the neighborhood and wheeling a fridge out.
The owner of the home was contacted and confirmed that the man did not have permission to be inside the house. Police then arrested the man, later identified as 49-year-old Lee Andrew Davis.
“It’s unclear exactly what the situation was at this house but he did go inside to steal the appliances,” Oklahoma City Police Msgt. Gary Knight said. “He did not find them outside. But to make it more interesting, the refrigerator was still full of food.”
