One of two brothers accused of stealing exotic birds from an Albuquerque pet shop was arrested in El Paso. 

Surveillance video captured two men taking off with two parrots from Petland on Paseo Del Norte and Louisiana in January. 

Police identified them as Daniel and Medardo Ibuado, but didn’t know where they were until Thursday, when Daniel was caught in El Paso. 

Thursday in court, Judge Maria Dominguez released him with court supervision. 

Police are still trying to track down his brother Medardo.
