Altus Police Looking for Burglar

Posted: Updated:

ALTUS Okla_ Altus police are looking for a burglar caught in the act by the homeowner Friday morning.

APD was called to a home in the 2200 block of Galaxy early just before 5:30AM. The homeowner said his dogs had been barking at a subject inside the home, and he woke up. He told police the suspect ran past him from the bathroom, where he was apparently hiding. The suspect was able to escape out the back door, and ran westbound in the alley. 

The victim later discovered two ladies' wallets and a cell phone missing from the home.

The suspect is described as a heavy set black male, about 6' tall and 240 lbs, wearing a red shirt and denim jean shorts. The victim reported no injuries.

If you have any information about this crime or any other crime, police urge you to call Crimestoppers at 580-482-TIPS (8477). You could be eligible for a cash reward.
