A 65-year-old Tulsa man was arrested early Monday after Skiatook Police got a call from a next door neighbor about a larceny from a home in the 100 block of North C Street.

According to Tulsa County jail records, Leonard White was booked into jail on complaints of burglary and larceny.

Police say White was spotted by a neighbor leaving the home on C Street in a red truck with a camper.

An officer patrolling nearby spotted the truck and stopped it.  Inside the truck, Skiatook Police saw a black tool bag on the passenger floor board.

After the homeowner identified the tool bag as coming from his home, White was arrested and taken to jail.

After posting a $22,500 bond, White was released from jail.
