DENVER (AP) — Police say luggage belonging to 70s rocker Peter Frampton was stolen by a man who's suspected of taking several other bags from Denver International Airport.

The Denver Post reported Tuesday that 52-year-old John Allen Papelbon told a police detective he snatched seven bags from the airport this year.

The detective who went to Papelbon's home in suburban Denver says he found a bag tag belonging to Frampton. The tag was the only thing recovered from Frampton's luggage, which was stolen in July.

Papelbon is due in court Dec. 10 for a preliminary hearing. He declined to comment to The Denver Post about the case.

Authorities say airport surveillance video from Oct. 27 shows a man matching Papelbon's description walking way with luggage.

He faces theft and burglary charges.
