From MPD:

“The First District has seen an increase in package thefts the past few years around the holiday season. First District Officers are aware of the historic trend and are giving special attention to residential areas. Within this past week, we have made three arrests of individuals regarding separate package thefts. In two of these incidents, the Officers were initially alerted by concerned neighbors who called 911 to report suspicious activity. I would like to thank the citizens who reported the activity and request the assistance of the entire community in being vigilant and reporting to 911 anytime they observe suspicious activity or persons. In each of the below incidents, the stolen property was also recovered.

· On Friday November 29th, at about 6:45 pm, a 19 year old male was arrested for a package theft from the 200 block of 11th Street SE

· On Saturday November 30th, at about 9:30 am, a 50 year old was arrested for the theft of a package from the 600 block of A Street SE

· On Thursday December 5th, at about 7:30 pm, a 25 year old male was arrested for the theft of a package from the 1200 block of Independence Ave SE

In addition to your vigilance, we also like to ask that you consider having packages delivered to an alternate site (work place or friend’s home) where someone would be present to accept delivery.”
