A News on Six Exclusive regarding a bust in a long-time investigation. Tulsa Police officers arrested a man they say they caught red-handed stealing parking meters from the downtown area.

He took off in his car and led police on a chase down the BA Expressway to Mingo. When it finally ended, officers found quite a stash in the backseat. Tulsa Police officer Shawn King, "We discovered he had approximately ten parking meters in his vehicle. Now the value of each one is about $500 a piece and we've had over the past year probably around 200 taken from the downtown area. So this is a pretty significant break for us in this case."

Officer King says Thursday morning's arrest could finally crack the case.
