Captured a video of someone walking down the street with a bag full of goodies already, stopping in our yard to help himself to another package the UPS delivery guy stashed in the bushes. If anyone recognizes this guy please contact MPD where there’s a report already on file for him. (Oh and if you live in Capitol Hill and happened to have a package stolen Saturday afternoon, this might be your guy.)
Cops said they recognize him but haven’t been able to catch him in the act yet. He’s been known to become violent when approached, so call 911 if you see him rather than confronting. (more…)
