TULSA -- It started online with what police said was an attempt to buy marijuana in Jenks, but ended at the Somerset Apartments with a stolen truck, money, and cell phone, and the alleged buyers held at gun point.

Police say the seller asked two buyers to drive from the meet-up point in Jenks, to the apartments in South Tulsa to buy the drugs.
When they got here three men in ski masks were waiting on them with guns.
Police say they stole their money and cell phones and drove off in their 1999 red Chevy Silverado.
Officers later tracked the phone and found it lying on the side of the road near 71st and Mingo.
This morning police are still searching for the Silverado, the carjackers, and a silver SUV they were in.
No one was hurt in the carjacking and armed robbery.
