Stop Sticks Help Bring Police Pursuit To An End

Police arrested this man after he ran from the pickup.

Police run all across east Tulsa chasing the driver of a stolen truck.

The pursuit began Thursday around midnight as Tulsa police gang squad officers were casing a suspect. They called for backup while following his pickup.

The driver, who hasn't been identified, gave chase for about 10 minutes.

Police used stop sticks and successfully destroyed the truck's front tires.

The man eventually ditched his ride at 11th and Memorial. He ran, but officers quickly arrested him.

Detectives are checking into if this is the same pickup used in a crime earlier this week.

In that chase, whoever was driving escaped after plowing through a north Tulsa cemetery.
