BOSTON (AP) — A Norwood man has been indicted on kidnapping and other charges for allegedly drugging gay men at their homes and then stealing their possessions.

Authorities said Monday that 50-year-old Riccardo D’Orsainville is facing charges including poisoning, larceny over $250 and receiving stolen property.

D’Orsainville is accused of using a fictitious persona with at least three men between March and April 2013 before going to their Boston homes to drink alcohol with them. The men told police they were drugged and passed out. They said they awoke to find thousands of dollars’ worth of belongings, including valuable artwork, had been stolen.

Police say they executed a search warrant at D’Orsainville’s home and recovered the stolen items.

His arraignment has not yet been scheduled.

D’Orsainville’s attorney declined to comment.
