A man accused of taking items from a Derry store is trying to clear his name,  saying that he was confused by the name of the store: Finders Keepers.

Police said Ruben Pavon  was shown on surveillance video taking a grill from the porch of the Finders  Keepers thrift shop.

"I grabbed the box," Pavon  said. "It was a fire pit, something like that. It turned into a grill, and I  took it home."

Pavon admitted that it  wasn't the first time he had taken something from there, but he said he thought  the items were free.

"I just grabbed one. I  thought it was there for the taking," he said. "The sign did say 'Finders  Keepers.' So I took that DVD player, took it home. A couple of weeks later, the  stuff is still there on the porch, so I'm thinking to myself, 'Finders Keepers.  They probably just put stuff out there for people to take.'"
