A man who acknowledged stealing the luggage of 1970s rocker Peter Frampton at Denver International Airport has been given a 60-day suspended jail sentence followed by two years of probation.
The Denver Post reports 52-year-old John Allen Papelbon, of Thornton, was sentenced on Friday and ordered to pay $8,884 (Dh32,600) in restitution. He pleaded guilty to theft of between $2,000 and $5,000, acknowledging he took seven pieces of luggage from DIA last year.
Authorities say airport surveillance video from October 27 shows a man matching Papelbon’s description walking way with luggage.
Papelbon took Frampton’s luggage when the guitarist arrived in town to perform in Beaver Creek.
