ROGERS COUNTY, OK – A Tulsa man suspected of breaking into a Rogers County home Wednesday morning has been arrested, according to the Rogers County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said the homeowner had just arrived home when a man ran out of the house and sped off in a vehicle.

The homeowner got the tag number of the vehicle and called the Sheriff's Office, who just happened to be in the area.

"This guy picked the wrong place and wrong time," said Undersheriff Tom Harrison. "It was just coincidence that we were both in the area and were able to pin him between us."

Deputies arrested Jeremy Alan Vazquez, 30. Vazquez said he had been at a job interview. Deputies searched his vehicle and found property taken from the home including jewelry, coins, and a family heirloom. They also found methamphetamine inside his vehicle.

Vazquez was booked into the Rogers County Jail on complaints of second degree burglary after former conviction of a felony, possession of a controlled substance, knowingly concealing stolen property after former conviction of a felony and driving under suspension.
