Last month, a local television news reporter scooped other local media when KFOR.com broadcasted an exclusive interview with a father who became the victim of phone theft.
The act occurred at a northwest Oklahoma City gas station, after Eric Jeandemange parked his large van, left the vehicle unlocked and entered the convenience store.
During the time Jeandemange was in the store, an unknown person removed his phone from the vans cup holder. He used his phone to look at photos of his seven kids and contact all his friends, according to the report from KFOR.
I have nothing, Jeandemange told KFOR. Its like somebody stealing your entire life.
In addition to the interview with the upset Jeandemange, surveillance video also documents the atrocity. In the footage, a person opens the drivers door, reaches inside and walks away from the van. Next, the woman skips.
Thats what really gets Jeandemange. It was a blissful perpetrator, perhaps someone proud of stealing someones most valuable possession.
She was happy, jumping, having fun seemed like stealing is part of life, seemed like its OK, he said.
