The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office reports the first night of the Tulsa State Fair led to an arrest on trespassing complaints at the hotel on the expo.

Criminals on the midway range from kids stealing to carnival workers cheating players to people who have had too much to drink.

With a swarm of deputies on the midway and eyes over the fairgrounds it doesn't take long to catch criminals to make quick arrests.

Last year, with more than a million people packing the midway for the fair, there were six arrests on charges of robbery, aggravated assault, stealing, trespassing, disorderly conduct and drunk in public including a minor.

Juvenile judges are also at the fair, so if a teen gets in trouble, rather than sending them to the detention center, they immediately see a judge to determine punishment.

Underage drinking is also being watched. On Thursday night state alcohol agents conducted a sting but did not find any vendors selling alcohol to minors.
