TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa police arrested two people accused of breaking into a home that wasn’t theirs, then trying to hide on a neighbor’s porch.
On Wednesday morning, police said homeowners were checking on their vacant house near Jasper and Trenton when they discovered a man and a woman inside. Officers later identified the two as William Lane and Keeli Neill.
The victims told police Lane pointed a gun at them and threatened them, saying he would shoot them if they followed him.
The suspects left the home and ran to another home up the street, police said. The victims watched where the suspects went and told police where to find them.
Officers said the owner of the second house let them come in to find the suspects. They discovered the two sitting on the man’s back porch with a gun. Lane admitted to police he had been inside the first home.
Lane was arrested on suspicion of burglary, pointing a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during a felony. Neill was arrested on suspicion of burglary and an outstanding warrant.
