Law enforcement agencies are using all of their resources to find a burglary suspect. 

Deputies responded to a burglary near Vinita on Monday morning, where two vehicles were stolen. Two of three suspects were arrested, but one took off in a Jeep, then ditched it, investigators say. 

“We had been given information by other suspects that he had four firearms and ammunition on him when he left,” Craig County Sheriff Heath Winfrey said. “So he is considered armed and dangerous.”

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol plane, Craig and Mayes County sheriff’s deputies and the Grand River Dam Authority all are involved in the search. 

Authorities have not released a description of the suspect.
