Police arrest a Tulsa man in Skiatook Tuesday in connection with a robbery and kidnapping on Thursday, September 20th.

He is identified as 31-year-old Derrick Turley.  

Police say an anonymous tip led them to Turley.  Investigators say the victims from that robbery were able to identify Turley in a photo lineup and family members were also called in, saying Turley was one of the men involved.

In his arrest report, Tulsa Police along with help from Skiatook Police arrested Derrick Turley just before 8 p.m.

Police believe Turley and another man set up a meeting with a couple trying to rent out their house, then tied them up and robbed them.

They say Turley is suspected of using one of the victim's ATM card at a Tulsa bank. Police released surveillance photos which allegedly show him withdrawing money from the ATM.
