PHOENIX (AP) - A man has been arrested for allegedly stealing from auto parts stores in Arizona and California and then cashing in the merchandise.

Phoenix police say 25-year-old Davion Brayboy is being held on suspicion of fraud scheme, burglary, theft and computer tampering.

They say Brayboy has prior felony convictions in California and Nevada for similar crimes.

AutoZone officials contacted Phoenix police in May 2014 about a series of burglary and fraudulent merchandise return incidents in their stores.

Police say Brayboy entered various AutoZone locations and when employees were busy assisting customers, he would allegedly go into the employee-access only parts section behind the counter.

Brayboy is accused of stealing small, high-dollar automotive components, then taking them to another store to return for cash.

He’s also accused of accessing AutoZone’s computer system.
