Just after 7pm Wednesday evening, JCPenney in Owasso notificed Owasso Police that a suspect had shoplifted a pair of diamond earrings, valued at $3,000.
The pursuit was short lived, as the suspect, 53 year old Clifford Towers of Bartlesville crashed his getaway car into the front drive at Mowery Funeral Service.
Towers was arrested, and charged with grand larceny and eluding. He was booked into the Tulsa County Jail.
It’s important to note that an arrest does not guarantee a conviction.
