Men allegedly try to steal $800 in electrical wiring from Burbank Home Depot

Two men were arrested Tuesday after allegedly trying to steal $800 worth of electrical wires from the Home Depot in Burbank, police said.

The men -- Kostia Manoukian, 71, and Bagrat Badalyan, 33, of Glendale and North Hollywood, respectively -- allegedly filled a shopping cart with the wires around 1:15 p.m., and then walked out without paying for them, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.

The pair was detained by loss prevention officers, who called the police. 

The men were arrested at the home improvement store at 1200 South Flower Street on suspicion of burglary, Ryburn said.
