image002The Columbus City Attorney’s Office on Monday announced the arrest of a man previously dubbed ‘the Downton Abbey Addict.’

30-year-old Branden Joseph Deel began a nearly 2-year run of stealing box sets of the series when he grabbed 12 of them (valued at more than $560) from a local store in January of 2014. In and out of jail since, prosecutors say in his moments of freedom, he would take more DVDs.

He was named officials’ Fugitive of the Week in mid-November. Upper Arlington police took Deel into custody late last week.
