Police say luggage belonging to Peter Frampton was stolen in July by a man suspected of taking several other bags from Denver International Airport.
The Denver Post reports Tuesday that 52-year-old John Allen Papelbon told a police detective that he's snatched seven bags from the airport this year.
The detective who went to Papelbon's home in suburban Denver says among the items found was a bag tag belonging to Frampton. The tag was the only thing from Frampton's luggage that was recovered.
Papelbon is due in court Dec. 10 for a preliminary hearing. He declined to comment to The Denver Post about the case.
Authorities say an airport surveillance video from Oct. 27 shows a man matching Papelbon's description walking way with luggage.
He faces theft and burglary charges.
