One man was arrested after leading police on a high-speed chase in North Tulsa late Sunday night.

Officers say they saw the suspect's truck driving recklessly in the area of Pine and North Harvard around 11 Sunday night.

An officer initiated a traffic stop, but the vehicle fled. It was tracked with the help of the Tulsa Police Department's helicopter.

The truck eventually crashed into a ditch near at the intersection of Evanston and Woodrow and the suspect ran into a neighborhood on foot.

Police say he attempted to hide in a shed in the backyard of a home, but the helicopter tracked his location, and officers took him into custody.

The suspect was identified as 28-year-old Brandon Darnell Frazier.

Police say they later confirmed the truck was stolen and officers located dozens of other car keys during a search of the vehicle.

Frazier was booked on counts of possession of a stolen vehicle, eluding, and other traffic charges.

Officers went to the business that owns the truck and saw evidence that it had recently been burglarized.

Additional charges could be filed after investigators view surveillance video from the business.
