TX - Addicted Oklahoma bug closer

Vista Medical Center is a frequent stop for Oklahoma City police.

Department records show officers responded to the clinic at 3700 S. Western 57 times between April 1, 2003, and June 2, 2014, on calls ranging from disturbances to theft to illegal drug sales.

Eighteen of the calls were serious enough to generate police reports. Seven of those calls involved Patrick Reynolds, the clinic’s owner.

In May 2004, Reynolds’ wife called police to report him missing. Loretta Reynolds told police her husband had told her he was going for a motorcycle ride and had been gone almost 24 hours. It’s unclear from the report when Reynolds returned.

In June 2007, Reynolds contacted police after thieves stole the building’s air conditioners.

In June 2009, Reynolds called police about questionable activity on the office credit card machine.

In July 2010, Reynolds reported his chihuahua missing. Reynolds told police he thought his neighbor had stolen the dog, but couldn’t prove it.

In May 2012, thieves again targeted the building’s air conditioners, stripping copper from the units.

In July 2012, Reynolds reported his loaded .45-caliber handgun stolen. Reynolds told police he kept a firearm on the property for safety.

In March 2013, someone pried open the backdoor to the business and stole two televisions and a safe.
