Man arrested after cutting a hole in a wall to break into a storage unit

TULSA, Okla. — A man was arrested after cutting a hole in the wall in order to break into a storage unit.

On Monday around 11:20 p.m., Tulsa police officers were called out to a storage unit facility near 31st and Garnett for reports of a burglary. Police said the security guard noticed a door to one of the units was propped open, and Andrew Hendricks was sleeping inside.

When officers arrived, they took Hendricks into custody. Officers learned Hendricks had rented the unit he was sleeping in, but there was also a large hole in the drywall that created an opening to the adjacent unit.

The owner of that storage unit said gas cans, concrete and flooring supplies, a shop vac and a generator were all missing from the unit that was broken into. Police said some of the missing items were recovered in the unit Hendricks was renting.

He was arrested for Second Degree Burglary.
