OK Insurance Salesman Believed Responsible for Suburban OKC-Area Burglaries Featured

A door-to-door insurance salesman in Garfield County, Okla., is believed to be casing out homes while trying to sell insurance policies.

Sheriff’s deputies told KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City that the salesman is employing high-pressure sales tactics, asking when a spouse might be home as a means to determining when the home might be unoccupied.

So far he has visited nearly a dozen counties across Oklahoma, but officials in Garfield County noticed a trend when he visited after guns, laptops and televisions were suddenly reported missing.

The burglaries, which started in late September, occurred at about the same time the salesman was marketing to more than 10 communities, according to the report.

Investigators say they have identified the salesman and questioned him. They have also checked the out-of-state company he represents. So far, they have found no criminal or civil complaints against him or the company.
