Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

My wife and I were wondering if our baby daughter’s new fall and winter clothes had arrived yesterday and were surprised to not find them on the porch. We looked back through the footage on our camera and discovered that a package thief had walked right on up and taken them at about 2pm on Tuesday afternoon. A minute prior, he could be seen walking up the street, saying hello to our neighbor, and then exclaiming that he “forgot his keys” and walking away back towards the nearby grocery store.

The neighbor goes inside a minute later and he returns to steal the package, while carrying plastic grocery bags.

So be on the lookout in Petworth just north of Rock Creek Cemetery for a middle-aged package thief wearing a black hat with an unidentified white logo on it. Hope he’s at least got a little one who could use some adorable fall clothes.”
