Teens accused of breaking into cars, stealing guns from FBI agent

TULSA, Okla. — Quick facts:

  • Police arrested teens they believe to be part of a car burglary ring.
  • They said the teens stole guns from an FBI agent.
  • They said there may be as many as 15 teens involved in the ring.

Tulsa police arrested three teens over the weekend accused of going on a major crime spree involving multiple cities.

The suspects are between the ages of 15 and 16.

Tulsa police detectives say the suspects admitted to breaking into cars often.

They said they go out around three times per week and break-into multiple cars during those times.

Because of that, Tulsa police say they suspect the teens in multiple car break-ins, but they can only prove one for now.

Detectives say the teens broke into a FBI agent’s car Friday night while they were in Bixby and stole multiple guns.

After that, police say, the group came back to Tulsa where they reportedly used the agent’s guns to victimize other people.

Detectives say they tried to rob a couple who were at Zinc Park near 31st and Trenton.

The group then went to the 61st and Mingo area where they allegedly robbed a pedestrian at gunpoint.

Not long after, a Tulsa police officer tried to pull the group over in the Honda Accord they were driving after the officer found it was reported stolen.

Police say they sped off.

There was a short chase, but officers were able to stop them with stop sticks near 3100 east 71st.

Tulsa police recovered the FBI agent’s guns from the stolen car. Officers arrested the teens and then took them downtown for questioning by robbery detectives.

The suspects reportedly told police that they are in a group of about 10-15 teens who break-into cars often.
