Tulsa police have been investigating a rash of car lot break-ins in the last couple of months.

Wednesday, they say they were able to recover two stolen cars and several sets of keys from the most recent break-in that happened on Saturday night.

FOX23 talked with the victims in that case, the owners of Global Car Sales near 11th and Lewis.

Management there says someone broke into their car lot overnight Saturday.

The thieves reportedly cut the power supply, phone lines, internet lines and video surveillance so they could have time to do what they needed.
