Tulsa police have arrested a man they believe stole six Harley-Davidsons from Myers-Duren Harley Davidson earlier this week.

The six pre-owned motorcycles were stolen from inside crates that were sitting outside of the dealership. At least two of the motorcycles have since been recovered. Ronnie Clabough was taken into custody after police tracked one of the stolen bikes back to him.

"That's really what led us to this guy, there was someone who said, this doesn't look right, that's a real nice expensive looking bike, I don't think that bike belongs here in this location and they gave us a call," Officer Leland Ashley told KTUL.

Clabough was arrested Wednesday morning after police found one of the stolen motorcycles with him. They found another somewhere else after interviewing him. Six vehicles valued at roughly $15,000 apiece were stolen.

'We found one of our mobile minis that was open, and there's two bikes outside, and the doors were open and there was two bikes inside," says service manager Victor McAnally .

He says the bikes were being stored while they remodel inside the building. /p>

 "Somebody brought two people here, they walked up got on two bikes, rode off and then came back," says McAnally.

 Based on surveillance tapes, he says, the crime took place late Sunday night or early Monday morning.
