TULSA, OK -- Three teenage boys are released and a fourth is still in custody following a traffic stop on I-44 near Yale in Tulsa.

Police say officers watched as a Cadillac swerved and cut off another vehicle around 3 o'clock Thursday morning.  When an officer tried pulling over the vehicle, the driver stopped in the middle of the highway.      

Four teens from 14- to 17-years-old were inside, but none of them had a driver's license.

Police say a search of the car turned up some marijuana and two handguns.  Officers say they also found an SKS rifle hidden under the hood.  Police say the rifle was stolen in Louisiana.

After questioning, three of the teens were released.  One is still being held.
