‘Tis the season for porch package theft in Roseville, Folsom

Published: Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013 - 11:33 am

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas -- with porch package theft on the rise.

Roseville police recently arrested Zachary Michael Agnew, 26, and Peyton Alexandria Stout, 23, both of Fair Oaks, on suspicion of possessing stolen property and conspiracy. The two are suspected of taking delivered packages from outside homes in Roseville and Folsom.

Police said that at about 4 p.m. Dec. 12 an alert Roseville resident called to report that someone had just stolen a delivered package from his neighbor’s porch in the 1200 block of San Simeon Drive.

The thief had driven away in a gray sport utility vehicle from the neighborhood near Cirby Way and Interstate 80. Officers spotted such a vehicle about a half mile away in the same neighborhood.

Police said that the SUV was stuffed full of packages, including some with address labels ripped off.

Officers confirmed that some of the packages had been stolen from the front of three homes in the same Roseville neighborhood. In addition, Folsom police identified the packages of four victims from their city.

Roseville police note in a public safety newsline that it is always good to track your packages online to better know when they might arrive. In that way, packages don’t sit for long on the porch.

If the package is likely to sit for awhile outside your empty home, reschedule delivery or have packages delivered to a neighbor.
