TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa police used OnStar tracking to arrest two car theft suspects Thursday morning, then used remote car keys to find two other stolen vehicles.

Officers got a call at about 4 a.m. that a GMC Yukon had been stolen from a home in the 4700 block of East 87th Street.

Using the information provided by OnStar, police tracked the stolen SUV to the 2500 block of East 88th Street.  They found the Yukon parked and two suspects standing behind it.

Police say the two men, Grant Anderson, Jr. and Alex Bland, started walking away, but officers took both men into custody.  Officers say they found the keys to the stolen vehicle in Bland's pocket.

Bland, 19, was also carrying a license plate police say had been stolen from another car.

As police were arresting Anderson, 18, they found two sets of keys in his pockets. Officers pressed the remote buttons on each key and found two other stolen vehicles – a Toyota Tundra pickup and a Ford Excursion – parked near the stolen Yukon.

Both Anderson and Bland were arrested on three complaints of larceny of a vehicle and knowingly concealing stolen property.
