TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- A 24-year-old Catoosa man was arrested by Tulsa Police late Tuesday night after leading police officers on a chase out of Tulsa into Rogers County.

The incident began just before 10 p.m. when police spotted a stolen pickup truck pulling utility trailer loaded with what they said was stolen property near the Ramada Inn in the 1000 block of North Garnett Road.

Officers tried to stop the truck and trailer near Admiral and Garnett, but the driver, Samuel Keim took off.

When the pickup truck reached Admiral and 193rd East Avenue, it lost the trailer after going over a parking lot bar at O'Reilly's Auto Parts. At that point, Keim got out of the pickup and ran off on foot.

After a search in a nearby neighborhood by a Tulsa Police K-9 officer and Rogers County Sheriff's deputies, police arrested Keim.

He was booked into the Tulsa County jail on a number of complaints including possession of a stolen vehicle and property, eluding and grand larceny.
