Wanted for Parcel Theft

The male shown in this surveillance photo is wanted as suspect in a parcel theft occurring on April 11, 2013, at about 4:15 p.m. in the 800 block Coronado Drive.  The suspect removed the parcel from the front porch of the home after delivery.  He then fled in an older, dark gray, Toyota 4-Runner, as described by the victim.  Computer parts were taken in the theft.

Although the loss value in this case was not significant, crimes of opportunity like this do occur and losses range in dollar value in each case.  It is important for everyone to be aware of their neighborhoods and anyone coming or going within them.  If you see someone suspicious, or as in this case, someone walking away with a package from a home, please don't hesitate to call the police.  Be a good witness and obtain the good descriptions for police dispatchers.  If possible, obtain any vehicle information and license plates as well.  Looking out for one another and reporting this type of crime if you are victimized will aide law enforcement in helping prevent this and other crimes.

HERE is a previous post with tips on helping to prevent against package theft.
