ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A St. Paul man has been sentenced to 60 days in jail after admitting he stole packages off porches just before Christmas.

Forty-nine-year-old Pedro Flores pleaded guilty in January in Ramsey County to felony theft.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports he was arrested Dec. 22 after residents in Summit Hill, Macalester-Groveland and other neighborhoods reported deliveries missing from their front porches.

Police conducting surveillance saw Flores go in and out of his house with "numerous boxes."

According to the complaint, Flores collected 12 bathrobes, a box of ornaments and a cooler of steaks.
