Police tracked down four teenagers they say burglarized a north Tulsa home late Sunday.

They arrested the teens as well as a man they said was helping the teens sell the stolen items.

A witness called police at about 10:30 p.m. after seeing the teens kick in the back door of a home near Jackson near Pine. The witness said the teens stole a TV and some lawn equipment.  

K-9 officers tracked the teens to a home a few blocks away. As the homeowner, Devin Clare, 27, was talking to police, the teens ran out the back door. A K-9 officer then tracked three of the teens to the attic of a nearby home. Police said they found the fourth teen at his grandfather's home.  

Officers said Clare admitted the teens wanted to sell some items on Craigslist, but he didn't know it was stolen.  They arrested Clare and booked him into the Tulsa County jail on complaints of possession of stolen property and interfering with a police officer.  They took the teens to the Tulsa Area Community Intervention Center.  

Police said they recovered the items taken in the burglary.
