Package Thief Caught on Home Surveillance Camera

 

The holiday season is here. Many of us are buying presents and having them delivered to our homes. Unfortunately, this can be a busy time for thieves who steal packages from porches – often in broad daylight. In this home surveillance video, a suspect drives up, walks to the front door of a home and then helps himself to the box that had been delivered there. This happened on November 15th at a home on Westridge Place in Camp Springs.
Here are some suggestions to help stop these types of thieves:

*If possible, pick up the ordered item at the store

*Ship the item to your workplace

*Have a neighbor keep an eye out for the item if you know you won’t be home during the delivery window

*Have the item sent to a friend or family member who is home during normal delivery hours

*If possible, ship the item to an Amazon Locker, UPS Office, FedEx Office or Post Office
*Require a signature at the time of delivery
Anyone with information in the theft highlighted in the video is urged to call the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Regional Investigation Division at 301-794-5064. Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477), or go online at www.pgcrimesolvers.com, or use the “P3 Tips” mobile app (search “P3 Tips” in the Apple Store or Google Play to download the app onto your mobile device.)
