Armed robbery, larceny and stolen vehicle charges were filed Monday in connection with a string of robberies this summer.
Marico Williams, 18, and Anthony Darrell King, 21, both of Tulsa, are charged with robbery with a firearm, Tulsa County District Court filings show.
Williams also faces a charge of larceny from a person, and King faces one count of possession of a stolen vehicle.
Williams was arrested Sept. 26, jail records show. Police had been seeking him in connection with a pickup that had been reported stolen from the QuikTrip at 1302 S. Garnett Road on Sept. 24.
Officers saw the pickup on 41st Street near 130th East Avenue about 5 p.m. that day and stopped it, police said. The driver, identified by police as King, fled on foot but was later apprehended.
Both Williams and King are in the Tulsa Jail.
Following his arrest, Williams admitted to investigators that he robbed two convenience stores and a pizza delivery driver in addition to the carjacking, an arrest report alleges.
An undisclosed amount of cash was taken during an armed robbery at 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.
On Aug. 28, a pizza delivery man was robbed by three men at the Plaza Hills East Apartments, 13025 E. 16th Place. Four pizzas and the driver's wallet were taken, police said.
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.
