Tulsa Police Auto Theft Detectives received a tip Wednesday about a serial auto theft suspect’s location after he avoided arrest the day before.

The suspect, Randall Liggins, was identified as part of a large-scale investigation launched in 2023 into hundreds of stolen vehicles in Oklahoma, Texas and Missouri worth more than $13 million.

Detectives developed more than 45 felony counts for Liggins related to Auto Theft and altering VIN crimes.

On Tuesday, Liggins led officers on a chase in Owasso that ended with him running into the woods and avoiding arrest.

A tip on Wednesday led detectives to a pawn shop near East Admiral Pl. and Memorial where they found and arrested Liggins as he walked out of the store. The car Liggins drove to the pawn shop was confirmed to have been stolen from a car dealership in Joplin.

Liggins was arrested for:

  • Possession of a Stolen Vehicle (24 counts)

  • Knowingly Possess a Stolen Vehicle with Altered VIN (22 counts)

  • Eluding

  • Conspiracy to Commit a Felony AFCF (After Former Conviction of a Felony)

This is an arrest, not a conviction.
