Arrested three times in one week, Tulsa police detectives piece together a burglary puzzle after a suspected inside job at a south Tulsa business.
Police arrested Jaxson Hall, 31, just 45 minutes after he bonded out of jail.
At the Cricket Wireless on 51st and Yale, the front window is covered in a board. It took two arrests to get the former employee back in jail where detectives hope he stays.
Surveillance video at Cricket shows a person who police believe is Hall breaking into Cricket Wireless at 51st & Yale.
The suspect knocks over cellphones and goes straight for the safe to steal cash and police.
“We got left out in the cold on that,” said Sarah Iiland.
She is Hall’s former boss at Cricket.
“We always suspected but didn’t know for sure,” said Iiland.
Police didn’t know either, while investigating the break-in at Wireless, records show on Friday, February 22nd, the same day of the burglary, Hall made his first appearance in jail for drugs. He hadn't been named a suspect in the burglary yet.
Seven hours later he came up with the money to post a $3,000 bond and walk to Storey Wrecker.
Five days later he was arrested for running from police and crashing his car in a Midtown Taco Bell drive-thru. That was his second appearance.
“It was out of control,” said Iiland.
While police were at Storey Wrecker looking inside Hall’s car they saw their suspect.
“I wasn’t thinking that he would show up and get his car or get his property from his car,” said Tulsa Police Burglary Detective Donnie Wright.
However, Hall walked up to Storey from jail and when he saw police, officers say he ran. After a brief chase in Downtown Tulsa, police say he jumped barbed wire fences and hid in dumpsters.
Police caught Hall for the third time in one week. He told them he stole because he owed his drug dealer money.
“He goes my life is just, in his words, 'my life is spiraling downwards,”’ said Wright.
Police say they found a backpack in Hall’s car where they found diagrams of the exterior and interior of the Cricket store.
FOX23 News also learned that Hall is a convicted felon out of Idaho for drugs.
His bond has more than doubled to $10,000.
