One person has been arrested in connection with a kind of slow speed chase early Wednesday morning. But officers are still looking for two more suspects.

Around 1:30 AM Wednesday, the owner of a trailer told police someone was trying to steal it. Stace Thompson says he was watching it because two nights ago someone tried to break in. When the suspects returned, he took action. “When I saw them pull up, cause the guy pulled up in the truck with the lights off and I immediately ran to my phone and called police and they responded well.”

The owner gave police a description of the trailer and they quickly found it. The suspect didn't stop until he got to Pine and Garnett where he bailed out. He was quickly arrested.

Tulsa Police say the truck used to pull the trailer was also stolen.
