OWASSO, Okla. -- Shocking video shows a former apartment complex employee entering a tenant's residence without any outstanding work orders or reason for entering. Now, Owasso police are investigating whether or not criminal charges should be filed.
“What if he tries to get revenge towards me? I’m by myself with the kids," Wildwood Apartment tenant Lupe Brown said.
It all began April 5 when Lupe Brown's shower needed to be fixed.
“When I got back, I noticed that the office was about to close, so I checked the shower and it was already fixed," she said. "So he came in while I was gone and I really didn’t think anything of it.”
The next morning, the mother of four had an unsettling feeling.
“I open the box and the ring is gone," Brown said.
Brown's wedding ring was snatched.
"I went out and bought cameras and set them up Wednesday night," she said.
Last Friday, she became sick to her stomach.
“I’m at work and I get a notification," Brown said. “That somebody was in my apartment, that movement was detected.”
The recently fired maintenance enters the apartment with a flashlight, walks into Brown's bedroom, searches through a box on the dresser and then digs through dresser drawers.
“I had no open work orders," Brown said.
He then makes his way to the living room and looks through a diaper bag.
"He was there without permission," Brown said.
The man finally ends at the kitchen, where he opens the fridge and freezer.
“He knows I’m here alone," Brown said. "He took the keys and I mean he could come in at any time.”
But before he leaves, he uses a Swiffer to clean the floor.
"That’s invasion of privacy," the mother of four said.
Brown filed not one but two reports with the Owasso Police Department. She also gave them a copy of the videos.
“They know who this person is, I told them his name, I know his tag number, I told them where he was working and they haven’t done anything," Brown said.
Brown says she'll be on edge until the man is caught. She's hoping it doesn't happen to anyone else.
The Owasso Police Department is investigating the case.
