Dennis Paiva tells the Boston Herald he scours the streets for trash to sell. He says he took the planters from behind a condominium because they were next to the trash and sold them for $450.
Police caught him on surveillance video. The 61-year-old convicted bank robber says he had no idea they belonged to the New England Patriots quarterback.
He agreed to pay $4,000 restitution to Brady's real estate trust. But he says he can't work after recent surgery so he begs passers-by for money.
A Patriots spokesman said he doubts Brady is aware of Paiva's situation.
