Tulsa Police said they arrested a man who is believed to have used a gun to rob five different business, in three different cities, and all in less than two days. 

Police said Quinton Jackson robbed a Tulsa Fiesta Mart and then tried to rob restaurant employees an hour later.

Okmulgee Police Chief Joe Prentice said the suspect acted completely calm and confident in all of the robberies. They said he walked in, pointed a gun at the employee, demanded cash, walked out and slowly drove away.

Okmulgee Police said they responded to two armed robbery calls, at two different store just blocks, and only minutes, apart. After Okmulgee Police releasing surveillance pictures, they learned of another armed robbery that happened an hour earlier in McAlester. They said everything matched the Okmulgee armed robberies.

Okmulgee Police Chief Prentice said Jackson is dangerous, and they are glad he’s off the street. 

“You don’t get that confident the first or second time. So, that made us think we need to look at someone who has done this before. As we started seeing these other incidents, it just made sense, that the close proximity geographically, the close proximity in time, we felt we were dealing with the same individual,” said Prentice.

Jackson is in the Tulsa County jail for robbery, but Okmulgee Police have filed an arrest warrant for Jackson for the two armed robberies.
