Man Steals Peter Frampton’s Luggage at Denver Airport

Uh, maybe they arrested the wrong guy.The alleged thief is 52 year-old John Papelbon.  He’s apparently confessed to stealing seven bags at the Denver International Airport this year, including one that belonged to Peter Frampton.

The story goes like this:  Papelbon stalked the baggage carousels looking for high-end luggage: Tumi, Rimowa, Gucci and so on, filching them in hopes that they contained luxury goods.

When the cops caight up wtih Papelbon, they found jewelry, clothing from Armani, Brioni, Kors and Coach; NFL swag; expensive ski wear; computer gear; golf shoes and more.  Anything else he might have taken was sold on eBay.  

There’s no word on what Frampton had in his suitcase.
