BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

A man who made off with his ex-girlfriend's video game console when he came to get his belongings from her apartment in January is now behind bars, officials said.

Nadir Chandler took a $300 Sony PlayStation 3 and a $30 wireless remote when he came to collect his belongings from his ex's home in the 1200 block of Livingston Street in Bethlehem at 2 a.m. Jan. 30, about two-and-a-half months after she told him to leave, officials said.

Chandler shoved his ex to the ground before fleeing with the stolen goods, officials added.

Police had trouble tracking down Chandler because his ex wasn't sure where he might be, telling officers that Chandler was either homeless, living with a neighbor or somewhere in Allentown, officials noted.

Chandler, 22, only gave Allentown as his address when he was finally found. He was arraigned Thursday on charges of receiving stolen property, harassment and theft and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $20,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing has not yet been set.
