More Packages Stolen – Suspect Sought

December 21, 2015

Richmond Police detectives need the public’s help to identify another man in the picture who is suspected of stealing packages from porches.

At approximately 6 a.m. on Sunday, December 13, the suspect was captured on home security video taking a package from a porch of a home on North Boulevard. He is described as a black male wearing dark pants, a blue jacket and flip flops. The video shows him leaving the area on foot.

Detectives ask anyone with any information about this person to call Third Precinct Detective Eric Sandlin at (804) 646-1010 or call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by your tip. Both Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.

Detectives suggest not having packages delivered to your home when you are not available to receive them. This creates an opportunity for someone to steal your parcels. Detectives suggest having packages delivered to your place of business or to a trusted neighbor.
