She told police Crawford was an ex-boyfriend. She said she received messages from two women who saw him in their car and confronted him and chased him away.

She said a debit card, a Bluetooth device and a phone charger were stolen.

According to police, surveillance video shows the women screaming at a man who officers recognized as Crawford.

In an earlier break-in, he took almost everything, including the kitchen sink, from an apartment on Avenue C, according to police.

Another conviction involved taking a medicine ball from a gym on Brookdale Drive.

In another case, police said a man trying to sell a BMW gave him a key to start it and Crawford drove off.

Crawford's theft sentences range from 180 days to 14 months. He was booked into the Wichita County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
