“Yesterday afternoon at about 3:00 PM, two PSA 107 Officers saw a subject, known to them as a package thief, standing in the 200 block of 11th St SE holding several items that appeared to be package contents. The Officers made contact with the subject and after further investigation they were able to identify the property as being stolen from the front of a home in the 1100 block of Independence Ave SE. The subject, a 47 year old male of Southeast Washington, DC, was arrested and charged with theft and the stolen items were recovered.
Last night, shortly after midnight, 1D plainclothes Officers were conducting surveillance of a suspicious person in the 600 block of 7th St NE. As a result of the Officers operations, they stopped this subject in the 700 block of H St NE, and recovered stolen property that had been discarded by the suspect in 600 block of 7th St NE. Additionally, the suspect had several outstanding bench warrants that stem from earlier package theft arrests. This subject, a 52 year old male of No Fixed Address, was arrested and the property was recovered.”
