Package theft on 23rd Street (VIDEO)

Patrick sent in this video of a man taking a package off of a porch on the 400 block of 23rd Street:

Our camera caught a young man stealing a package off our porch on the 400 block of 23rd Street yesterday. He crossed the street and removed another package from our neighbor’s porch as well. It occurred midday yesterday, a little after 2pm. Please keep your eyes out for people who might be prowling up and down the street and going house-to-house!

This video makes me want to invest in some type of personalized drop box for my front porch. We had 2 packages stolen on 1/10/17.

Someone should leave one rigged with some explosives – that would make a more entertaining video

This is so nuts this happens so much in Church Hill! I get a lot of package deliveries out here in Peter Paul and have not had this problem. Really weird.

We are on the 300 block of 23rd and had two packages taken at the same time of day. They seem to be doing this by car, just stopping on different blocks and picking up. They are clearly following the pattern of the delivery drivers because it had been less than an hour since I had picked up another packaged delivered on our porch.

Does anyone know if anyone has been caught by the police based on these videos? I have seen a few on various channels and they are pretty clear images, but they don’t seem to be a deterrent for crime. I have been considering getting one, however not sure how worth it they are if they don’t have an effect.

Megan- the camera has to be visible to thief in order to be a deterrent. The video here appears to be an inside camera pointed out the window.

Sounds like a troll

Detective contacted us today. Sent him the video. It is unlikely to involve any federal charges since it occurred after the delivery of the package. We might push this issue if they do actually catch the guy.

Video will be shared with officers in the area. If anyone did have more information on the suspect, or thefts in the same time period, let me know and we can pass along contact information for the detective.

I had a package stolen in December. Caught on my camera. Some guys at the vacant house next door talked the UPS guy into giving them the package! Yes, I called the police and reported it; and UPS; and the store I bought it from.
