Tulsa Police arrested a man in connection with a rash of recent marijuana dispensary burglaries. Police say Keyshawn Kaufman was booked into jail August 15, but they are still looking for the other person involved in the burglary spree.

Kaufman was booked on complaints of second-degree burglary and attempted burglary.

Police say they believe he teamed up with another man and broke into four dispensaries last Friday. They say surveillance video showed a gold Ford Crown Victoria with front-end damage at one of the scenes.

An officer saw that car at QuikTrip near Harvard and Admiral Thursday morning and brought Kaufman in for questioning. Police say he admitted to detectives that he was involved in the break-ins.

"He admitted that it was his vehicle on the video surveillance and that he was responsible," said Officer Jeanne Pierce. "I think he stated in one incident, he broke into the business but on another, he was just outside while someone else broke into the business."

Kaufman is scheduled to appear in court next week.
