The investigation began on November 1, 2018, when a Delaware City resident discovered that three packages that she was supposed to have delivered at her residence by UPS were missing.

The video was turned over to the Delaware City Police Department. After reviewing the video the Delaware City Police Department was able to positively identify, Daniels, a neighbor of the victim as the suspect who removed the packages from her doorstep, said Baylor.

On Tuesday, November 6, 2018, the Delaware City Police Department arrested Daniels. He was charged with theft and video arraigned before a Judge at Magistrate Court #11. He was released on $500.00 unsecured bond.
