Authorities say a Glendale man was behind a string of thefts that has plagued the city since October.

Rabert Amirdizajtakieh, 42, was arrested on suspicion of burglary on Wednesday after the Glendale Police Department said a surveillance camera caught him in the act on Sunday in the 300 block of North Kenwood Street. Authorities say he was wanted in connection with a series of thefts that saw several bicycles and a motorized scooter taken from their owners.
