A man wanted for allegedly stealing exotic birds from an Albuquerque pet shop is now behind bars. 

Police say video shows 36-year-old Medardo Ibuado and his brother, Daniel, taking off with two parrots from Petland on Paseo Del Norte and Louisiana in January. 

Daniel was caught back in March in El Paso and was later released from jail in Albuquerque by Judge Maria Dominguez. 

Medardo was booked into MDC Thursday and charged with larceny.

The birds are still missing.
