It took six hours, but a Tulsa Police standoff in the 1900 block of East Oklahoma Place ended peacefully just before 2:30 a.m. Friday. 

Police say it all started when a man called about some assault rifles being stolen from his home.  The victim showed Tulsa Police surveillance video of several men stealing the rifles. 

That video led police to a home on East Oklahoma Place where officers spotted one of the men in the video. 

Tulsa Police surrounded the home and ordered those inside to come outside. 

The home's owner came out and said there were four other people inside, and the standoff began.

Early Friday morning, another man exited the home and surrendered to police. 

Just before 2:30 a.m., Tulsa Police used tear gas and got the last three people in the home to surrender.  

Police released the identities and ages of the four people arrested:

  • Jason Rathburn, 22
  • Jacob Rathburn, 24
  • Amber Hughlett, 24
  • Melissa Steely, 22 

A fifth person in the home, the homeowner was questioned and released.

Officers found rifles in the home and are checking to see if they're the ones stolen in the earlier burglary. 

They also found some blasting caps, which had to be removed by the TPD bomb squad.
