TULSA, Okla. — A Tulsa family has one stolen guitar back and is looking for another Monday after a break-in at their home.
Patrick Cunningham says the two guitars belonged to his son who was killed in a car wreck.
Police say someone broke into the family's detached garage and stole the instruments some time between September 30 and October 2.
Cunningham worked with Tulsa police patrol officer Albert Caballero to track down information about a potential suspect after the break-in. Police say surveillance video from a south Tulsa guitar shop showed Kevin Megeehee allegedly trying to sell the guitars.
Cunningham and police tracked the suspect to where he was reportedly living and someone inside let officers search the apartment.
Officers found one of the stolen guitars as well as a guitar case full of stolen items -- checks, IDs, passports, and several sets of keys and garage door openers.
Police arrested Meegeehee on October 2 and he now faces charges for having stolen property and a false declaration of ownership.
Detectives say additional stolen property charges could be added as they find victims who own the other stolen items.
