BALTIMORE, MARYLAND- A man was arrested in Baltimore for stealing eight Hermes handbags from a house in Texas that are worth $200,000.

Edward Bryant is held on a fugitive warrant and authorities in Texas made moves to have him extradited.

The purses were stolen last month in University Place, Texas and Bryant and another man were identified as suspects.

Police contacted authorities in Maryland, who arrested Bryant at his house.

The handbags were recovered and range in value from $15,000 to $38,000 each.

Authorities are trying to find the other man wanted in the heist.
