TULSA, Okla. — Two people are in custody Tuesday after a chase led police through an east Tulsa neighborhood.
Police arrested Devan Whitehead, 26, and Kamron Basset, 27, after finding them in a neighborhood near 31st and Sheridan early Tuesday morning.
Tulsa police say they initially tried to stop the Whitehead while driving because the car he was driving was involved in an earlier robbery at the Fiesta Mart near 31st and Harvard.
Police say the chase went to a neighborhood near 31st and Sheridan where Whitehead crashed through a gate in a driveway.
Officers arrested Whitehead after they say they found him under a house in a crawl space.
Police found a box of ammunition in the car and a gun on the roof of one of the nearby homes that they say they believe belongs to Whitehead.
Police say they checked security video at the store and spoke to witnesses to determine Whitehead was not involved with the robbery.
He’s facing charges for eluding, possession of a firearm while committing a felony, resisting arrest, and breaking and entering.
Police also arrested the passenger in the car during the chase -- 27-year-old Kamron Basset -- for an outstanding warrant.
