Tulsa Police arrested one man and are looking for another in connection to two robberies. William Henry Fox III was booked on complaints of robbery by force, felony larceny of merchandise and felony DUI 7th offense.

Authorities said Fox and another man robbed the Dollar General at 51st and Memorial and assaulted a clerk around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, June 10. 

They got away with a trash can filled with merchandise, a report states. The clerk was able to provide a description of the suspect vehicle, a blue Ford Expedition.

Police recognized the description of the SUV as one that was involved in an earlier theft at the O'Reilly's Auto Parts at 1100 South Garnett. 

Around 7:20 p.m. Saturday, the clerk at O'Reilly's saw the suspect's vehicle at a QuikTrip across the street. Police surrounded the SUV and stopped it as the driver tried to leave, according to police records.

Authorities said they found stolen merchandise from Dollar General, O'Reilly's and QuikTrip in the Ford. They also arrested Fox. Officers said they found some clothing belonging to the second suspect whose arrest is pending.
