TULSA, Oklahoma -

Two teens were arrested after Tulsa police caught them reportedly stealing copper from an AC unit. An officer in a TPD helicopter - flying near Sheridan and Interstate 244 - spotted them on the roof of a business around 3 a.m.

When police arrived on the ground, the teens jumped off the roof and ran.

Officers eventually caught both of them. The first teen was caught along westbound King Street, and the second hiding in someone's backyard.

Police say the teens also confessed to stealing a nearby car. It had not yet been reported stolen but was recovered at the business.
