Police Seek Stolen Helicopter In Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 2 (UPI) — Police in Oklahoma say a search is on for a helicopter stolen from the grounds of an Oklahoma City construction company.

Shortly after the theft was reported at 5 a.m. Tuesday, the search moved to west Oklahoma City where a police officer had earlier reported seeing a helicopter on a trailer, The Oklahoman said.

He thought it was unusual but did not get a message of a stolen helicopter until later, the newspaper reported.

The stolen aircraft is described as having red seats and blue tail rudder, with an open-cockpit design and 20-foot rotor span.

Construction company owner Bruce Akbaran said he found the helicopter missing when he arrived at work Tuesday, with signs of it having been dragged across concrete and loaded onto something.

He bought the helicopter about five months ago, he said, but had not had the opportunity to fly it yet.

“It is a toy I got for me and my son,” he said.
