(TULSA, Okla.) On Thursday at 2:24 p.m., an alert MVD patrol officer saw a green Chevrolet Tahoe she knew to be associated with the theft of the Amazon truck.  Just before she stopped the truck the driver drove into the parking lot of a storage facility near 5500 S. Mingo Rd. The driver, Jason Kravis, and the female passenger were detained so an investigation could be conducted.  The investigation revealed that Kravis had a storage unit at the facility he was driving to. The investigating officers wrote a search warrant for the storage unit. Inside the storage unit officers found merchandise believed to have been in the Amazon truck when it was stolen. Continued investigation lead officers to an abandoned residence at 8142 E. 15th St. Officers followed fresh truck tire tracks to a shed on the property. The shed was found to contain 58 shipping containers with Amazon labels. Officers believe that after stealing the Amazon van the suspects drove it to the abandoned property where they unloaded the contents. They stripped the packaging off the merchandise. The suspects discarded the shipping containers,  books, and other intellectual type materials they had no use for in the shed. They parked the empty van a few blocks away where it was discovered. Officers believe the high value items have been sold or distributed to co-conspirators. A small quantity of the truck's merchandise  was recovered from the storage unit and the shed. Since the shipping labels have been removed it is impossible to link it to any purchaser. Citizens who suspect their items were stolen should contact Amazon. Jason Kravis was arrested for auto theft, and possession of stolen property. The passenger was not linked to the crime. She was arrested for public intoxication. Officers believe there is at least one other person involved in the theft of the van. This is a continuing investigation.
