Man allegedly steals iPhone, Kindle from gym, then returns to finish workout

Burbank police arrested a man Thursday who allegedly stole an iPhone and Kindle tablet computer from a gym, took the items to his car and then returned to the gym to work out, police said.

The victim flagged down officers at around 7:30 a.m. outside the Burbank Athletic Club at 226 East Palm Ave. to report the stolen items.

Surveillance video allegedly revealed a man -- who police identified as Jonathan Ng, 34 -- in a white shirt and shorts taking the items, exiting the building, and shortly after, returning to lift weights.

The suspect was arrested for petty theft and cited out pending a court date.
