Some Tulsa burglars got "caught on tape" recently... from an eye in the sky.

The police department's helicopter unit shot pictures with its FLIR... a forward looking infrared device.

The chopper tracked some men who'd been breaking into cars at an apartment complex on South 77th East Avenue.

The chopper caught the suspects bailing out of their car.

The officers in the sky directed the ground troops in for the arrests.
