It took a Tulsa Police K9 officer to get a suspected burglar out of an attic Thursday evening.

Police were sent to the 500 block of East Seminole after a homeowner discovered someone was in his attic.

Tulsa Police identify the man as Steven O'Connell, 35.

Police say when they ordered him to come down he yelled "F--- off, pigs!" and threw things at them.

An officer lifted a police dog up the attic's ladder and moments later, O'Connell crashed through the ceiling into the kitchen below.

O'Connell was booked into the Tulsa County jail on a complaint of first degree burglary.

He told police he was visiting a friend nearby and after doing drugs, got thirsty and went to the first house he saw to get a drink.
