Andrew J. Burtoni, 32, was arrested by the Scottsdale Police Department near his home in Mesa at around 3:00 p.m. on Thursday.

Bradley’s clubs were taken on Jan. 30, when he was playing in the Waste Management Phoenix Open Pro/Am.

According to police, the clubs were recovered on Jan. 31 in Gilbert and returned to Bradley on Feb. 3

At one point, Bradley believed that he had found his golf clubs for sale on the auction site OfferUp soon after they were stolen, but it turned out to be a fake post using a picture of his clubs taken on an earlier date.

The D-backs pitcher got his golf bag back on Monday and tweeted a picture with it.
