A couple of sharp-eyed Jenks police officers arrested two men for breaking into dozens of cars.

They arrested 18-year-old Eric Hyde and 18-year-old Jesse Gleaton Friday night.

An alert neighbor called 911 after watching two men try to break into his car.

Working off the man's description, officers s began searching surrounding neighborhoods and discovered two dozen more cars that had been broken into.

They spotted the suspect vehicle and when the driver refused to pull over the chase began.

Officers caught up to them and took them into custody.
