A police chase ends with four people in jail, and a power outage. It's a story you'll only see on the News on Six.

Tulsa Police say a man left his keys in his truck around two-thirty Thursday morning when he went into the Quik Trip to pay for gas. When he came out, his truck was gone. Police spotted it about a half hour later and gave chase. The driver wound his way into a mobile home park at about Mingo and Independence and the four suspects bailed out.

Tulsa Police Sgt Gary Otterstorm, "The truck ran into a telephone pole, actually it was a utility pole and snapped a wire. Then the truck rolled back into police units and came to rest." The four suspects are all teenagers. They were quickly taken into custody. Two police vehicles were slightly damaged in the chase.

Damage to the stolen pick-up could top $10,000. Charges are pending.
