Oil City has obtained footage from a downtown security camera, taken the night of a burglary.
The investigation into the theft of several camera bodies and other high-priced accessories from Downtown’s Wyoming Camera Outfitters is ongoing. Police have released very few details about the case, and have not released any footage themselves, however Oil City was able to obtain a copy of the footage from an area private business.
Wyoming Camera Outfitters staff said last weekend, that they believe the suspects entered the building through the second-floor alley window, and absconded with several items of extreme value.
Reporters have shown several stills from the security footage to police. Investigators declined to say if the car or driver shown in the images is a suspect, however officers did say that if anyone has any information as to the identity of the person, police would like to speak with them.
The car is only visible for a very brief time, and is seen as the car is exiting the alleyway. The store window that officers suspect was used in the theft is not visible.
Screen-capture from submitted video.
Two cameras were able to capture images of the car as it drove by, from two angles.
After the vehicle leaves the alleyway, nothing is seen for many minutes, before finally police can be seen pulling up.
If you have any information about the case, please call Casper PD at (307) 235-8278.
