TULSA - Two men were arrested after attempting to steal copper from a north Tulsa church early Wednesday morning.
Police say Jerome King, 18, and Jerome Lane, 22, were taken into custody after they were seen leaving Greater Grace Tulsa Church with copper around 2 a.m.
Police say 17 air conditioning units were stripped of their copper before police arrived.
Pastor Donald Tyler said the church plans to install security alarms soon.
“We’re here to help (and) for someone to come in here and take us for $90,000, that's ridiculous," said Tyler.
The two will likely face burglary charges.
