TULSA -- Police are investigating after about 10 cars were broken into at an east Tulsa apartment complex Tuesday morning.

Officers responded to the Sugarberry Apartments near 61st and Garnett around 4:30 Tuesday morning after receiving reports of the break-ins.

One of the victims, Michael Claude, said he forgot his 40 caliber handgun inside his SUV Monday night. Claude says when he checked this morning, his passenger window was broken and his gun and magazine missing. 

“My firearm was in my glovebox, but I had it separate from my magazine so my magazine was in my passenger side of the car, so I checked back there too and they took that too, so they had to search my car," said Claude.

At this time, police have arrested a suspect in overnight vehicle burglaries, though police say they can't confirm a connection to the burglaries at Sugarberry Apartments.

TPD reminds you to never leave any valuable items inside your vehicle. Even if you think you hid them well, criminals will still break in.
