A Tulsa police chase ended with an arrest of a burglary suspect Wednesday morning.

It started after a woman called just before 9 a.m. to report her Cadillac had been stolen.

Regina Williams told officers her car had a GPS tracker, so officers were able to pinpoint its location with the dealership's help. They tracked to the 5800 block of East King Place.

As officers were en route, the car was spotted leaving the neighborhood. When officers tried to stop the driver, he took off but crashed the car in the 700 block of North Sheridan Road.

Police said the driver got out of the car and ran south across Interstate 244, causing a minor crash on the highway. He was eventually arrested on East Admiral Place.

Inside the car's trunk, officers found a TV believed stolen from a home on East King Place.
