TULSA -- A local business is trying to find out who stole the cookie from the cookie jar after dealing with a second break-in within the last few weeks.

You can see in the surveillance video owners of Barbee Cookies showed Two Works For You, a man pulling up along the bakery on Memorial Drive around 1:40 Saturday morning.

He uses a tire iron to smash the bottom window of the business, climbs through, and steals the cash box filled with $150.

Owners believe this was the same man who broke into their store back in May who stole the cash box filled with the same amount of money.

In total with the combined $300, and hundreds spent repairing the broken glass from both burglaries, the owner's attitude has changed from empathy to anger.

"We literally prayed for this guy and just hoped the best for him and now we’re thinking hey, hey buddy, justice really needs to be served because you’re not remorseful, you’re doing it again," said Co-owner of Barbee Cookies, Kat Graham.

Graham contacted TPD after the first break-in, but said because of the high number of cases they're dealing with it's been hard for officers to focus solely on this burglary.

If you know anything about the man or vehicle you see in the video, contact the Tulsa Police Department.

Barbee Cookies is also offering the sweet reward of two dozen cookies to anyone that helps them catch this man.
