Norman business owners recently stopped breaking into nearby business

NORMAN, Okla. (KFOR) – Two retired police officers, who now own a liquor store, stopped a break-in suspect from acting just a week after they private business was stolen.

“It was surprising that he used that kind of weapon to break the window and it was very scary,” Terry Sterling told News 4 earlier this week.

KFOR spoke to Sterling a few days after his Norman liquor store, Capt. Jack’s Wine Rum & Spirits, ransacked by three masked thieves.

They were caught stealing nearly $800 worth of alcohol.

Fast forward to Wednesday night, there was a call nearby at a nearby business.

Teresa Sterling, Terry’s wife, told News 4: “It was, I’m sure, very scary.

Just before they closed on Wednesday night, Teresa said she heard glass breaking.

“We locked the door for the evening and luckily I had to go to the back to get something because if it wasn’t there, we would have missed it,” she said.

After she heard that sound, Teresa ran outside to see what was going on.

“We looked north of us and saw a guy running out of the Secure Secure Storage unit and he was screaming. So I grabbed my shotgun, because I’m a retired cop, and we went down there and I told him to show me his hand. He didn’t want to show me his hand. I told him to put his hand up,” she said.

Teresa and Terry restrained the suspect until police arrived.

In the meantime, they learned the suspect may have been searching for employees inside the front office of the storage facility.

“He told us he saw a woman in the window, that’s why he went in there, which worried me because I thought, ‘is he a rapist?’” Teresa said.

Thankfully, the staff was okay.

KFOR left a message with Norman PD, asking for the suspect’s name, and we have not received a response.

Teresa doesn’t believe the suspect from this latest incident has anything to do with the liquor store burglary.

“They may have some suspects they’re looking at, but it’s not like there haven’t been any arrests,” she said.

A crew was on the scene Wednesday morning to repair the broken window.
