TULSA, Okla. – An 18-year-old man is behind bars after he was allegedly caught breaking into a firefighter’s vehicle on Tuesday morning.

Around 3 a.m., officials say 18-year-old Jonathan Parker broke into a few cars and a home in south Tulsa.

However, his alleged crime spree came to a sudden end.

Authorities told KOKI that Nate Morgans, a training chief with the Tulsa Fire Department, realized his personal vehicle had been burglarized and went looking for the alleged suspect.

Morgans’ wife says she spotted Parker attempting to break into her husband’s Tulsa Fire Department SUV.

At that point, Morgans held the manĀ at gunpoint until police arrived.

“He was a little shooken up, but mostly because I had pulled a gun on him,” Morgans said.

Parker was arrested on two counts of burglary of a vehicle, first-degree burglary and public intoxication.
