Around 12:30 a.m. an officer driving southbound on 129th E. Ave. noticed a driver with the bright headlights on. The officer attempted to stop the car, but the driver took off.

The chase ended at the Meadows Apartments on 116th East Ave. Police said the driver of the stolen car hit a parked vehicle at the complex and then fled on foot.

During the investigation, officers noticed a suspicious Trailblazer driving in the apartment complex. When they stopped it, they ran the license plate number, and the vehicle came back as stolen.

Police arrested the SUV's driver and the passenger. Officers said the suspects worked together with the driver of the first stolen car.

They could have been coming here to commit other crimes, and the other Trailblazer that was following was their support vehicle to pick them up, not necessarily uncommon for two stolen cars to drive in tandem,” said Sergeant Brandon Smith.

Both vehicles were reported stolen from a neighborhood in north Tulsa on Pine and Harvard Wednesday morning.

Investigators also found a stolen gun in the Honda and a flat screen TV.
