Thank you so much, Clayton. That arrest in a spring of high-profile burglaries in los Angeles. A 32-year-old man accused of targeting celebrities taking millions in fine wine, jewelry and art. Our chief national correspondent Matt Gutman is in L.A. With the story. Good morning, Matt. Reporter: Hey, good morning, George.

Cameras going black for hours at a time and apparently stole so much loot that they believe he had an accomplice.
