(Newser) – Ruben Pavon swears he didn't mean to steal a grill and a DVD player from the porch of a New Hampshire thrift store—he just thought the business's name, Finders Keepers, meant they were free, WCVB reports. "I'm thinking to myself, 'Finders Keepers. They probably just put stuff out there for people to take.'" The store's owner, whose surveillance camera caught the pilfering, isn't buying it, but so far, police haven't pressed charges. Pavon has returned the items.
