BROKEN ARROW, Okla. -

Broken Arrow Police arrested two men after two locations in Broken Arrow and several in Tulsa were burglarized, including a church and day care center.

According to Broken Arrow Police, 26-Yyar-old Zachary Weatherford and 28-year-old Tevin Buyckes had a busy couple of weeks.

“Combined with Tulsa, there has been at least six burglaries in the area we know of so far,” Officer Chris Walker said.

Officer Walker said late last month, 15 iPads were stolen from a childcare facility on South Aspen Avenue in Broken Arrow.

Police said Weatherford and Buyckes also broke into the Rhema Ninowski Recreation Center on the church property, where $100 in cash was taken along with camera equipment.

Officer Walker said most concerning is both were armed with a handgun. Walker said the men were selling some of those stolen items that eventually lead to their arrests.

“Any property with a serial number gets ran through a database and the businesses were able to provide serial numbers and that’s what started our detectives on the path of discovery,” Walker said.

Both men face multiple counts of second-degree burglary and Knowingly Concealing Stolen Property.

Officer Walker said the case is still under investigation and they’re planning to return the stolen items.
