Back in July, Browner was arrested following a police chase in Azusa, California and faced a long list of charges that included kidnapping, burglary, false imprisonment, and violation of a restraining order.

Police say he left, but not before he took a Rolex watch valued at about $20,000.

NBC Los Angeles noted Browner was caught after officers from the La Verne Police Department responded to a call at 10 am saying a man broke into a house via a locked window.
