Crews work 2 hours to move stolen bulldozer left in the middle of 81st Street

TULSA - A stolen bulldozer was left abandoned in the middle of 81st Street early Wednesday morning, blocking both lanes of traffic.

2NEWS was the only television crew on the scene just after midnight.

Tulsa police say two young males were seen running from the large piece of construction equipment just after midnight.

Officers say the bulldozer was hot wired, then left straddling the road, blocking both directions of traffic on 81st between Sheridan and Memorial.

Police tell 2NEWS the machine belongs to Becco Construction Company, which is working on a project in the neighborhood to the north of where the bulldozer was found.

It took more than two hours before authorities could get the bulldozer removed from the street.
