BOSTON (AP) - The father of the toddler known for months as Baby Doe after her remains were found on a Boston Harbor beach has been freed on $200 bail after pleading not guilty to shoplifting charges.

Joseph Amoroso refused comment outside court Wednesday following his arraignment on a larceny charge for allegedly trying to steal about $600 worth of items Tuesday from a Boston Home Depot, including a $329 band saw.

According to the police report, Amoroso told the arresting officer: “Do you know who I am? … Now you can tell everyone you arrested baby Bella’s father.”

Amoroso is the father of 2-year-old Bella Bond, who was buried last week. Her remains were found in June.

Amoroso never met his daughter.

Bella’s mother’s boyfriend is charged with murder in her death.
