Stoops’ home burglarized

NORMAN —  Police said Thursday they have no suspects in a burglary at the home of Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops.

Norman Police Sgt. Jennifer Newell said officers received a call from the house at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday reporting that a break-in had occurred overnight. Newell said the exact time of the burglary is part of the department’s ongoing investigation.

Newell said several members of the Stoops family were home when the burglary occurred, but no one was injured.

“There were people at the house at the time,” she said. Newell would not confirm whether Stoops was at the house. He and several Oklahoma players were in Wichita, Kan., on Wednesday night for an appearance at an OU Club of Wichita event.

Newell said a number of items were reported missing after the burglary, including a vehicle.

“It was personal property and my understanding is a vehicle as well,” she said.

Newell said she was not aware of any other burglaries reported in the same neighborhood recently. She also said she did not know of additional security precautions that were being taken following the burglary.
