Crime Alert: Package Thefts

Keep alert for unfamiliar cars on your street, sometimes cruising slowly not far behind a delivery truck such as FedEx or UPS.  Today in Wedgwood, theft of packages left on porches was reported.

A dark Blue Acura Legend car, late around 2000 year model, was seen.  The occupant, a clean-cut-looking white male about 5′ 11″ wearing a white tee-shirt, was seen taking packages off porches in Wedgwood on NE 83rd Street.  The car had 2-3 bicycles on the back which obscured the car’s license plate.  The car was packed with a bunch of Amazon boxes and many other things.  If you see this car, try to get the license plate number and call police.
