A Tulsa Police K-9 team discovered a suspect hiding in a trash can early Friday morning following a chase that started after a smash-and-grab in Sapulpa. The suspect, Jaycinto Delmon Huey, was treated at the scene for bite wounds after K-9 Officer Loki tracked him down.
The incident started at a Sapulpa Walmart where authorities say Huey was involved with a serial larceny crew that has been targeting area Walmart and Target stores, stealing electronic equipment. Several men with hoodies covering their faces smashed cases in the electronics department, taking game consoles and games.
They ran out the back of the store and drove off, almost hitting a police officer who began a pursuit.
Sapulpa Police chased the vehicle north, and three people bailed out around 37th and Elwood. Police say Huey made an attempt to ram the Sapulpa police unit that started the chase. Tulsa Police and Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers assisted when the chase moved into town on Highway 75 near Southwest Boulevard.
Huey led officers to a neighborhood at 1900 North Boston where he then abandoned his vehicle and ran. K9 Officer Kite and partner Loki found Huey hiding in a trash can in the 1900 block of North Main. Huey sustained several bite wounds to his leg and was treated at the scene by EMSA.
The 22-year-old man was taken to the hospital and is expected to be booked into Creek County Jail on complaints of assault with a deadly weapon, larceny, eluding and resisting arrest.
Police have taken a second suspect into custody, according to Sapulpa Police. He is 19-year-old Drevain Dwight Overstreet.
