A man was jailed Wednesday after admitting to committing four robberies this summer, police said.
Marico Williams, 18, is being held on three complaints of armed robbery and one complaint of robbery by force or fear, jail records show.
He was arrested in the 1600 block of South 130th East Avenue about noon Wednesday, according to his arrest report.
Authorities sought Williams after a pickup was stolen from a driver at gunpoint at the QuikTrip convenience store at 1302 S. Garnett Road on Monday afternoon.
Officers saw the pickup on 41st Street near 130th East Avenue about 5 p.m. Monday and stopped it, Officer Leland Ashley said. The driver, identified by police as Anthony Darrell King, 21, fled on foot but was apprehended.
Investigators questioned Williams following his arrest. He admitted to robbing two convenience stores and a pizza delivery driver in addition to the carjacking, the arresting officer wrote.
Cash was taken at gunpoint from the Flying J Travel Plaza store at 121 N. 129th East Ave. on June 26 and the QuikTrip at 215 N. Garnett Road on June 29th. Multiple robbers are suspected in both incidents.
On Aug. 28, a pizza delivery man was robbed by three men at the Plaza Hills East Apartments, 13025 E. 16th Place. Four pizzas were taken, as well as the driver's wallet, police said.
Williams and King are in the Tulsa Jail. Williams' bail is set at $200,000. King is held on a complaint of possession of a stolen vehicle after a former felony conviction. His bail is set at $8,000.
King pleaded guilty to an amended charge of assault with a dangerous weapon in 2008. He was originally charged with shooting with an intent to kill. The charge alleged that he shot at a Tulsa police officer who interrupted a burglary in March 2008.
He served five months of a four-year prison sentence and was scheduled to remain on parole until 2018.
Anyone with information about the additional assailants involved in the robberies is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or submit a tip online at tulsaworld.com/crimestoppers
