LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police have arrested a 23-year-old man suspected of stealing luggage from Los Angeles International Airport.

KCBS-TV reports (https://cbsloc.al/1ywqyXA ) the arrest Thursday came after investigators monitored baggage claim areas over the weekend.

Airport officials had reported a recent spike in thefts.

Police say they spotted a man taking a bag from a carousel in Terminal 5 and leaving the area. A short time later he was seen taking another bag at a nearby terminal.

Authorities then followed him into a restroom, where he was heard shuffling through the bags in a stall.

Police say Ryan Green of Long Beach was taken into custody on suspicion of commercial burglary.

Detectives believe he was responsible for previous baggage thefts at the airport.

It’s not immediately known if Green has a lawyer.
