Video: Suspected Package Thief Out Smarts The Camera, Not Really

Officers from the New Castle County Division of Police are currently searching for a suspect observed on surveillance cameras removing a package, police said Tuesday.

Officials said on Monday (9/12), New Castle County Police were called to the 1600 block of Bonwood Road (Evergreen Apartments at Riverfront Heights) for the report of a theft of a package.

Officers contacted the victim who reported two packages were delivered to his residence and both were removed from the door.  The victim advised he had a Ring camera installed and captured the suspect removing the packages.

A review of the footage shows a shoeless black male subject with a beard, wearing a blue Adidas shirt and black Adidas pants removing the packages. The subject then exits the view of the camera.

Upon further investigation, the officers learned a suspect fitting the description has been observed on other surveillance footage around the area removing packages.

If you can identify this suspect or have any information regarding this investigation, please contact M/Cpl. Maura Schultz at (302)395-8171 or [email protected] or call the New Castle County Police non-emergency number at 302-573-2800.
