Minn. Man Accused Of Stealing Items From Doorsteps

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A St. Paul man is accused of stealing dozens of packages delivered to doorsteps in a local neighborhood.

Forty-three-year-old Pedro Flores is charged with felony theft.

St. Paul police say when Flores was arrested Wednesday he had about 40 stolen items in his car. They say another dozen items were found in his home.

Authorities say the items included designer clothes, a scooter, video games and other items sent via Federal Express.

Police tracked down Flores after several witnesses reported his license-plate number.

Online court records didn’t list an attorney for Flores on Friday.

Police spokesman Andy Skoogman says authorities are trying to return the confiscated items to their rightful owners. He tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press that residents who haven’t received gifts they were expecting should contact police.
