Tulsa Police arrested three people they say are responsible for a string of robberies and burglaries.

Officers say they spotted a stolen car at the Motel 6 near 31st and Skelly drive. They detained the driver, a 17-year-old girl. During the investigation, police identified that car had been stolen on September 1st when the victim was ambushed by two men at an apartment complex. The female was arrested for possession of stolen property, her name has not been released.

That arrest led police to a motel room where the officers found three men with three stolen guns from an earlier burglary in Bixby. The recovered firearms include two Glock pistols and what officers described as an AR-15 type rifle as well as extra magazines. 

Two of those men, Terry Landrum and Deqandrie Nesmith, were taken into custody along with the female teen. The third male suspect was released. 

The stolen car was returned to the owner.
