TULSA- A burglary ring suspect was arrested after a standoff in south Tulsa Saturday night. 

Police were called to a home at the 6300 block of South 109th East Ave. yesterday evening when they learned a burglary suspect, Kevin Warford was at the home.

During the standoff, 9 people were found inside and Warford was found hiding in the attic. 

Two men and two women were taken into custody. 

Many residents were unable to get to, or out of their homes during the standoff. 

One neighbor said she was worried about her children's safety with this type of activity happening. 

"I am very scared, because I am very protective of my kids, and each time that they're going to school, either drop them or watch them get on the bus, watch them get out of the bus just because of this kind of situation." said Esther Etumudor. 

Police say they believe Warford is the final suspect arrested in a burglary ring in Tulsa.
