Tulsa police arrested a carjacking victim after discovering he had an outstanding warrant out of a nearby county. They also arrested the carjacking victim's mother and sister for obstructing their investigation.

Tulsa police say they received a call late Thursday night from a man claiming he'd been carjacked by a group of armed men.

When police arrived to the scene near East 56th Street and South Peoria Avenue, the caller, 22-year-old Garrett Dobbs, was nowhere to be found. Neither was his 2006 orange Dodge Charger.

Approximately two hours later, Dobbs' sister, 20-year-old Chelsea Dobbs, called police to report Dobbs was missing.

Police say they met Dobbs' sister and mother, Judy Tisdale, near East 61st Street and South Peoria Avenue to sort what happened to Dobbs.

In the course of their investigation, police say they learned Dobbs had an outstanding felony warrant out of Muskogee County, which explained why he wasn't at the carjacking scene.

After inconsistencies in Dobbs' mother's and sister's stories, police looked in their car.

They say they found Dobbs lying on the rear floorboard and arrested him for obstructing an investigation and placed a hold on him to await transfer to Muskogee Co., where he's wanted on a felony warrant.

Dobbs' sister and mother were also arrested for obstructing an investigation.

As for the Dodge Charger, police say a group of armed men stole it. It was last seen near East 61st Street and South Utica Avenue around 1:30 a.m. Friday.

It has Oklahoma tag 705 PEK.
