PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A man accused of stealing luggage at the Portland International Airport last month has been indicted by a grand jury on four counts of first degree theft.

On Sept. 13, Bruce Grippen allegedly stole three pieces of luggage from the baggage claim area, police say. Officers arrested Grippen and one other suspect in connection with the thefts.

The district attorney's office then issued no complaints in both cases in late September because prosecutors weren't ready to bring the case to a grand jury. Investigators needed more time on the case because one of the alleged victims lives in Italy.

After the delay in the grand jury hearing, Grippen was finally indicted. He was scheduled to make a court appearance Monday.
