Quick work by a KOTV security guard helped Tulsa Police catch a suspect in several parking meter burglaries in downtown Tulsa overnight Tuesday.

The guard heard a man hit a meter just outside the KOTV studios, at 3rd and Frankfort, and saw him on camera. He called police and told them where he last saw three men running. One suspect was caught and identified. Police recovered an old fence post used to hit the meters, along with some change and a device used to open the coin boxes.

Two suspects remain at large.
