BIXBY, Okla. (KTUL) — Former restaurant owner Azmy Elghazaly has not had a very good 2018 so far.

It started in January when a car plowed through his restaurant just off Memorial in Bixby.

Later, there was some trouble with a former business partner, serious trouble, according to Elghazaly.


Now, adding insult to injury, his trailer, packed full of restaurant equipment, Elghazaly said he was trying to sell. It was parked in the back of his old restaurant when it was stolen over the weekend.

Now, adding insult to injury, his trailer, packed full of restaurant equipment, Elghazaly said he was trying to sell. It was parked in the back of his old restaurant when it was stolen over the weekend.

"I guess he took everything," said Elghazaly.


Surveillance cameras caught the whole thing.

The driver of a truck can be seen backing up to the trailer, then taking his time hooking it up.

It took several minutes, but he managed to make a clean getaway.


"I had all restaurant equipment, fryers and steam tables. I had refrigerators from the restaurant," said Elghazaly.

In total, Elghazaly said the crook got away with more than $3,000 worth of equipment.

Not counting the trailer, which he says cost around $2,000.

"It was a brand new, 2015. Bought and hardly used," said Elghazaly.

Trailer theft is pretty common in Green Country, but police say there are things you can do to prevent it, like leaving the trailer hooked up to a vehicle or buying a lock for the hitch.

Writing down your VIN number and take pictures of any identifying marks in case it does get stolen is also recommended.

As for Elghazaly, he talked with us in hopes someone might recognize this guy and help put him behind bars.

Oklahoma is one of the stupidist State In The United States It is number two right behind South Carolina why do you ask?


They do not register trailers and it is legal to tow it with no tag and that means the police cannot stop you without a "probable cause"
