PHOENIX -- Bond is set at $75,000 for a transient suspected of stealing four luxury cars from Phoenix health clubs since early December.

Phoenix police believe 45-year-old Richard Cory Barker followed the victims into two workout facilities in northeast Phoenix.

He allegedly broke into their lockers as they worked out and removed personal property including car keys.

Authorities say Barker sold one of the vehicles for $8,900 after advertising it online and giving the buyer a fake title.

The buyer was unaware it was stolen and paid cash at that time.

Undercover officers posed as potential buyers for one of the stolen vehicles and took Barker into custody Monday.

Barker is being held on suspicion of vehicle theft, taking the identity of another, trafficking stolen property, credit card theft, forgery and burglary.
