Daimond Oil Smash & Grab Burglary
On 10/12/13, the Diamond Oil located at 2534 SE 17th St. was the victim of a burglary.
On 10/12/13, at approximately 6:40 am, officers from OPD responded to the Diamond Oil located at 2534 SE 17th St., due to a call from the management advising they'd had a break in. Upon arrival, officers found that a front glass window had been broken out and the area behind the sales counter was in disarray. A piece of concrete was found and appeared to be the object used to smash out the window.

Sureveillance video was later obtained. This showed a white male with a shirt around his face enter through the broken glass window. He attempts to fill up a crate with cigarettes and beer twice, but drops it twice when trying to escape out the window with it. After his second attempt, he abandons the crate and opts for taking what appears to be a case of beer and a carton or two of cigarettes. He manages to get out of the window with these items and flee. In the process of his bumbling attempts to commit the larger theft, the t-shirt around his face falls off and his face is exposed.
