TULSA, Okla. - A Tulsa man is behind bars. Tulsa Police tell KRMG he tried to steal a 150-year-old violin valued at $10,000, among other items.
Investigators tell KRMG that officers were sent to Saied Music Store near 71st and Mingo around 6 P.M. Thursday.
The victim, a Said Music Store instructor, told police that a white male had stolen his personal $10,000 Klotz violin, which he says is 150 years old.
