TULSA, OK – All Bob Morton wanted for Christmas was a dinosaur, but he didn’t get one. So he went to the American Association of Petroleum Geologists and stole theirs the day after Christmas. Now, the dinosaur thief has been arrested but the dinosaur remains missing.

On 12/26/2021, Morton was caught on security cameras stealing a life-size dinosaur statue from outside Decopolis on 11th St. near Peoria.

The same suspect, Bob Morton, was also caught on video vandalizing and stealing several copper plaques belonging to the American Association of Petroleum Geologists near 15th and S. Boulder, another pre-historic related crime.

To add to his list of abominable crimes, Mr. Morton also removed copper tubing from AC units at a church near 9th and S. Boulder. This church was hit multiple times for well over $10k in damages.

The Tulsa Police Downtown IMPACT Team identified Bob Morton as the suspect and started looking for him. On 1/31/2022, Morton was located near 17th and Denver Ave and arrested. Morton confessed to some of the crimes. At this time, unfortunately, we have not recovered the missing statue of the prehistoric reptile species.
