4 arrested after police say suspects stole assault rifles, ammunition from south Tulsa vehicle

TULSA - Four people were arrested over the weekend after police say they broke into a vehicle in south Tulsa and stole weapons and ammunition.

Early July 12, police say the vehicle was broken into near 61st and Memorial.  The suspects took three assault rifles, five handguns, ammunition and a ballistic vest.

Hours later, around 2:15 p.m., Gang Unit officers recovered two assault rifles during a traffic stop near 28th and Garnett.  Police say these two rifles were stolen during the burglary earlier in the day and investigators determined the suspects were planning to sell them to Tulsa gang members.

Police say the suspects live just blocks from where the early morning burglary occurred.  When officers searched the residence, they found all the firearms stolen during the burglary but one.  Also recovered were two additional firearms stolen during other incidents.

Police say they found nine firearms, the ballistic vest and ammunition during their investigation.

Three adults -- 18-year-old Jorod Knowles, 18-year-old Paige Lottinville and 19-year-old Jalen Rawlings -- and a 17-year-old juvenile were arrested for various charges, including burglary from a vehicle, concealing stolen property and resisting arrest.
