TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police used the high-tech camera on their helicopter to catch two men suspected of robbing a pizza delivery driver early Friday morning.

It all started when the driver walked up to a house in the 100 block of North Maybelle just before 1 a.m.  Police say two men came up behind him demanding money, the pizza and the driver's coat.

After the two robbers ran away, the driver called police.  The Tulsa Police Department's helicopter just happened to be nearby and began a search.

Using the helicopter's infrared camera, the officer in the chopper saw three men running on the trail near the Sand Springs Expressway and followed them to a garage apartment in the 1000 block of West Brady Street.

Police surrounded it and found a group of men inside.

After several hours of questioning those inside the apartment, Tulsa Police say they arrested 18-year-old Richard Bexfeld and 20-year-old David McCool. 

They were taken to the Tulsa County jail and booked on one complaint of armed robbery each.
