It didn't take long for Harold Ghaemmaghami, 45, the suspected Garden Glove bandit, to be caught by police. It was earlier this month that police asked the public's help in identifying the robber that targeted at least 17 Valley stores while wearing gardening gloves.

He was arrested Sunday night for grand theft after allegedly attempting to steal a '08 Buick from an auto dealership in Woodland Hills.
