Tulsa Police Chase Down Three Teens In Luxury Car Thefts
TULSA, Oklahoma - Three teens were arrested after reportedly stealing luxury cars from a Tulsa dealership - and police are looking for a fourth. The arrests came after an overnight car chase that started at the Lexus dealership near 41st and Memorial.
Police say the juveniles broke out the passenger side windows of the vehicles at about 1:30 a.m. and took off. Officers spotted the cars leaving the lot after one of the drivers broke through a gate.
Authorities began pursuing the alleged car thieves - following two of the cars to Highway 169 and two to 51st Street. Police used stop sticks to stop one vehicle near U.S. Highway 75 and 36th Street North. The tires were shredded, but one juvenile was arrested at that scene.
