Norman, OK - Three individuals are accused of stealing more than $10,000 from a single Target store in Norman. Two suspects appear to be students at the University of Oklahoma.

Reportedly, Sutton confessed to a Target Asset Protection Team Member (now there's a title) that the trio stole approximately $3,000 in cash along with numerous articles of clothing, at least one DVD player, a camera, Ipod and DVD's.

Target reports that some unopened merchandise and unspent cash were returned after the suspects were confronted. Target estimates $7,468.40 of cash and merchandise is still outstanding.

All three reportedly live at the Reserve on Stinson apartments in Norman.

Each of the three has been charged with felony larceny from a retailer.

Man Doesn't Relish Recent Trip to Mexican Restaurant

Norman, OK - Patron of local Mexican restaurant sues after a tortilla allegedly broke his dentures.

According to court papers filed February 5, Noble resident Steven R. Williams was enjoying a night out at Tulio's Best Mexican Food in Norman on the evening of December 29, 2006.
