NY man accused of purloining parrot

AUBURN, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a 43-year-old central New York man entered a woman's home, stole her parrot, computer and dryer knobs and unplugged her refrigerator.

Lee L. Baker Jr. of Auburn, near Syracuse, is accused of burglarizing the home of the woman who had an order of protection issued against him.

City police say they picked him up Monday on a warrant and charged him with felony burglary and two misdemeanors.

Police say the stolen items, including a green and red Cinnamon Cheek Conure parrot, were returned by Baker's girlfriend.

Baker was released on bail and is to return to court at a later date. There was no phone listing for Baker in Auburn and his lawyer did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
