A 21-year-old Burbank man faces identity theft charges this week after police found a re-encoded credit card in his home during a probation search.

Gaik Panosian, who is on probation for identity theft, was arrested Tuesday after a Special Enforcement Detail officer recognized him near Doran Street and Concord as someone who detectives were looking for, Glendale police said.

In February, detectives conducted a probation compliance search at Panosian’s apartment and found a re-encoded credit card, police said.

He wasn’t home at the time of the search, but police continued to look for him.

Panosian was arrested in October in an Arizona hotel on suspicion of possessing credit card skimmers and illegally manufactured credit cards, according to the Lake Havasu City Police Department.
