A suspected burglar, who was so bold he teased Tulsa Police about his crimes, is now in jail.

The News on Six brought you this story Wednesday, and Thursday we had exclusive video of his arrest. Detectives say they were flooded with calls about 21 year old Antonio Myrie. A tip led them to east Tulsa and they nabbed him.

Officers say Myrie resisted arrest, so they put him in shackles, and carry him to a police van. Police nearly arrested him Tuesday, but he got away, and then later called the detectives to gloat about it.

He's a suspect in a dozen break-ins, including the Hammond Animal Hospital where two dogs were stolen and one was later run over and killed.

Police say they found enough stolen property in Myrie’s shop Thursday to fill a van.
