TULSA, Okla. — Police in Tulsa have arrested two people accused of driving a stolen SUV through three stores and stealing almost a dozen AR-15 rifles.

Investigators allege 43-year-old Anthony Martinez and 37-year-old Shannon Fryman drove through an exterior wall and two interior walls to reach a firearms store early Friday.

A probable cause affidavit says they were in the store for about a minute and loaded at least 11 rifles and five boxes of ammunition into the SUV.

Records at the Tulsa Jail indicate Fryman and Martinez were booked Monday on complaints of second-degree burglary, possession of a stolen vehicle and larceny of an automobile. Martinez was also booked on five complaints of possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
