[February 17, 2010]  DENVER (AP) -- This Robin Hood is accused of stealing -- and not to give to the poor.

Authorities said a 34-year-old named Robin Joshua Hood found someone's wallet in downtown Denver and apparently began using the man's name in a ploy to avoid being caught on a warrant. Hood told investigators he was being investigated for drug charges.

Hood was charged Friday with identity theft and impersonation.

Authorities said Hood's true identity was uncovered after an employee at a record store stopped him as he allegedly was leaving without paying for three baseball caps on Jan. 6. He was issued a court summons in that case.
