BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (KOKI) – A man was arrested after he allegedly left behind a trail of evidence from a theft at a home being remodeled in northeast Oklahoma.
On Friday, crews remodeling a home in Bartlesville arrived at the site to find equipment missing and a paint trail coming out of the house.
