Bartlesville police told FOX23 that they are still looking for a possible accomplice in relation to a string of recent burglaries.

Bartlesville Police Department Capt. Jay Hastings told FOX23 that Keenan Davis, also known as Keenan Burkhalter, was arrested Monday on two counts of first-degree burglary.

Police said that they are still investigating to see if someone else was involved.

"We are also looking at the possibility that he may have been working with someone else," said Hastings.

Hastings said that police were called to residences in the 4300 Block of Southeast Fleetwood on Monday on reports of burglary in progress.

Neighbors told FOX23 that they were home when someone attempted to come inside of their home.

"He couldn't see me but I could see him, and then he smashed the glass,' said one victim.

Carl Cunningham said that he discovered that his home was burglarized and electronics were stolen when he arrived home from work.

"I guess it was a quick smash and grab and he was gone," said Cunningham.

Hastings said that officers were able to apprehend Davis about an hour after the 911 calls were made.

Officers were shortly thereafter alerted that the Tulsa Police Department was looking to question Davis in relation to Tulsa homicide.

Tulsa Police Homicide Sergeant Dave Walker told FOX23 that they have interviewed Keenan Davis as a "person of interest" in relation to a shooting that happened at the Western Pines apartment complex in West Tulsa on July 14.
