YUKON, Oklahoma -

Yukon police were involved in a pursuit Tuesday morning that came to a stop in the deep end.  

The suspect ending up crashing his truck into someone's pool.

It all started when police said they noticed a man standing outside a truck parked on the side of the road and stopped to see if he needed help. As the officer was leaving, he ran the tag on the vehicle and realized it was stolen.

"Once the officer discovered that the vehicle was stolen, he turned around and that's when the suspect took off," said Major John Brown, with Yukon police.

The pursuit didn't last long but ended up in a residential neighborhood.

"The suspect had driven down Cumberland Mansion Street and went through the fence at the end of a cul-de-sac," said Brown.

The suspect then drove through the fence of another home and crashed into a swimming pool. 

 Michael Mason said his wife was home at the time when she heard their dog barking.

"She went to let her out the back door and that's when she looked and saw a pickup in the swimming pool and called me," said Mason.

The suspect had already taken off. Police said he jumped over multiple fences. They even said he tried to get into a home where a teenager was sleeping.

"There's kids there, there's kids in that second house," said Johnnie Houston Nelson, a neighbor. "We've never had anything like that around here."

Police said Leslie Brock was eventually found on someone's roof about a quarter of a mile from where he crashed.  

He was taken into custody and is expected to be booked into the Canadian County jail.
