A serial shoplifter is now behind bars.

Albuquerque Police say in December, Anthony Aguirre stashed hundreds of dollars in electronics into a backpack at the Target on Lomas, pulling a knife on a loss prevention employee who tried to stop him.

Through surveillance video, police recognized him from several other cases.

On Friday, APD officers working a blitz at the Home Depot on Coors saw Aguirre try to walk out with a hammer drill kit and power tool without paying.

He was arrested as he tried to get away.
