GLENDALE, AZ — A man steals his ex-girlfriend's bearded dragon, terrarium and mattress while violating an order of protection multiple times.

Glendale police report that on March 3 Jesus Erubey Jacquez, age 24, was arrested at his home near 24th Street and Southern Avenue.

In his home, police say, they found multiple items that he allegedly stole from his ex-girlfriend's home after breaking in on numerous occasions.

Among the stolen items was her mattress, terrarium and her bearded dragon, a small reptile weighing about a pound.

Police say Jacquez violated an order of protection by kicking open his ex-girlfriend's door, stealing items from her home and assaulting her on many occasions since January.

The first time he was waving around a handgun telling her that, "he'd be back."

Jacquez has been charged with crimes including weapons misconduct, criminal trespassing, and assault.
