Security guards at the Jet Propulsion Labs parking lot on Thursday detained a man for allegedly stealing hubcaps, authorities said.

The guards called the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station at 4:45 p.m. after they saw Ara Badashian, 35, of Altadena, looking into someone’s car.

Security guards later found four stolen hubcaps in Badashian’s vehicle, authorities said.

“He was caught with hubcaps from a Toyota and a Volkswagen,” said Det. Rodger Burt of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station. “It was later determined the hubcaps were taken from other vehicles on that lot.”

Badashian, a parolee, was booked later that night. He is being held without bail at Twin Towers Correction Facility.

“We’re filing a case and presenting the case on Monday,” Burt said.
