    • He surrendered himself to police on Tuesday

    TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa police say a man on the most wanted list has turned himself in.

    Carlos Cooper was booked on arson, endangering human life and assault and battery charges after officials said he set his girlfriend’s north Tulsa home on fire in December.

    The fire happened near 46th Street North and MLK Boulevard.

    Tulsa fire officials said when they got to the home there was “heavy fire involvement in several areas.”

    Investigators said evidence is leading them to believe that Cooper set fire to the house after an argument with his girlfriend.

    He was charged in the case in January but it wasn’t until Tuesday that he turned himself in after being put out as one of Tulsa’s most wanted on Monday.

    Records show Cooper was released from prison in November 2017 and was still on probation. He has multiple assault and battery and burglary convictions in the past.
