Broken Arrow Man Arrested In Alleged Wheel & Tire Theft Ring
TULSA, Oklahoma - Tulsa Police say they have made an arrest in a tire and wheel theft ring that operated throughout the city.
Broken Arrow resident David Madison Jones, Jr. , was arrested Friday. The 44-year-old Jones, of David's Custom Wheel and Tire at 10705 East 11th Street, is charged with conspiracy to commit a felony.
Police say the tires and wheels were mostly stolen from car dealerships and rental car businesses, according to Tulsa Police.
The investigation into the theft ring has been ongoing since December, 2014, when officers arrested Kejuan Barnette in a sting operation at Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
They said at that time that Barnette had stolen more than $75,000 of wheels and tires from vehicles across east Tulsa.
Barnette, 22, is wanted on an outstanding warrant for the same charge.
