MADISON, Wis. -

Police said a 27-year-old man stole 29 Goodyear tires from two Madison businesses.

The Madison Police Department said Anthony C. O'Brien took nearly $3,500 worth of merchandise in two thefts this month. 

O'Brien stole Goodyear tires from Jiffy Lube's East Washington Avenue store Dec. 3, according to the report. He is also accused of stealing tires from the Eagan Road Jiffy Lube days later on Dec. 14. 

Police said in both cases, the tires were taken after hours from racks outside the store. Surveillance video helped investigators link O'Brien to the thefts. 

O'Brien was charged with theft.
