Police: Vehicle stolen in burglary at Stoops' home

According to police reports, Bob Stoops' home was burglarized early Wednesday morning with a car stolen.

The home of Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops, in northwest Norman, Okla., was broken into early Wednesday morning, according to police reports, and a car was reported stolen.

Norman police reported the incident happened about 3:30 a.m.

Stoops' family was at home during the incident, but no one was hurt, according to ESPN.com. The incident was reported to police later that morning at about 8:30 a.m.

A police source told FOXSportsSouthwest.com early Thursday that the intruders are assumed to be people who have been working construction or other jobs around the house. The source said the alarm to the house was not set and the security gate was opened and the robbers came in wearing masks, according to the source who said police had video of the incident.

Cash and other items were reported stolen and it will be considered a first-degree burglary  because people were at home at the time.

Stoops and his family moved into the home about a year ago. It was not immediately known if Stoops was present during the robbery, but he was scheduled to be in Wichita, Kan., for a university event, along with several other players.
