Phoenix police have arrested two people in connection to several gym thefts.

Michael Bradley and Robert Abbott are both behind bars Thursday night, facing burglary and theft charges.

Court paperwork shows that Bradley and Abbott would go into the gyms, break into the lockers and steal people’s wallets.

The first incident happened in September at the LA Fitness near 22nd Street and Northern.

They also targetted Planet Fitness at 49th Avenue and Bell Road.

The suspects attempted to use the credit cards at various businesses, racking up a $2,000 bill at one location.

Bradley has spent time in prison for doing something similar in the past. According to his Facebook page, he claims to be a Wildland firefighter.

Abbott also has a lengthy criminal history.

So far, there are three victims identified, but police believe there are more.
