Police arrested a homeless man they call a serial shoplifter. 

Officers were called to the Kohl's store on 71st Street east of Highway 169 just before 9 p.m. Sunday after security saw the man leaving the store. 

Security told police they recognized Clint McConaghie, 37, because of past shoplifting incidents at the store. 

A short time later, police spotted McConaghie in a black GMC Arcadia and stopped it. Officers said McConaghie admitted he was wanted on nine felony warrants for shoplifting and told them "just take me to jail."

Police searched the SUV, which was reported stolen in Owasso, and found merchandise from Kohl's inside.

They booked Clint McConaghie into the Tulsa County jail on several complaints of larceny of a retailer. Jail records show he has a court appearance set for May 11.
