Police Bust Oklahoma Theft Ring That Possessed $2.5M In Vehicles
Tulsa Police say they’ve busted a major auto-theft ring that was operating out of Bixby. Detectives say they can’t remember seeing an operation of this magnitude before.
‘57 known vehicles and approximately two-and-a-half million dollars worth of inventory,’ said Tulsa Police Detective Darin Howse.
Police say the inventory includes many high-end vehicles, including a Bentley SUV, that were stolen mainly from dealerships and car-rental companies all around the country.
Police say the suspects would get new titles for the vehicles here and then resell them wherever they could find a buyer.
In fact, police say it was a buyer in Texas who tipped off police, when the buyer found the VIN number on the vehicle they bought didn’t correctly match the vehicle.
