The tables have turned for an Oklahoma City home burglary suspect. 

Police say 25-year-old Justin Dillon and probably an accomplice, burglarized a home in Northwest Oklahoma City during the early morning hours last Thursday. 

A man, his wife and two young children were asleep in the house while police say the suspects stole televisions, a purse containing credit cards, and other personal items.

“They were actually moving things around, dressers out, moving frames around, and through the whole thing, the residents slept through the whole thing,” said OKC Police Spokesman Gary Knight.  

Police posted surveillance photos on Facebook of a man that looks like Justin Dillon in a local store, where police say he used the stolen credit cards. Moore Police arrested Dillon Thursday after a short chase.

He was driving the Lexus police say he also stole from the home.

News 9 talked to the husband at the home Friday afternoon. While he doesn’t want to be identified, he said he wanted to thank police for solving the crime. 

“I guess they were courteous enough to at least take their shoes off when they were robbing me, so they wouldn’t track mud through the house,” he said. 

Justin Dillon is in the Cleveland County Jail, but he is also a wanted man in Tennessee.
