Not so special delivery-package thief in Magnolia
Posted on August 12th, 2014 by Sara
There have been some package thieves at work in our neighborhood over the past several weeks. Here are two accounts from the first weekend in August. We don’t know if the two incidents are related:
I just wanted to report that I think a package thief may be at work in our neighborhood. We live at 43rd and Dravus. While at the Seafair Fun Fest in the Village Friday evening we had 2 packages left on our porch by UPS. Only today when I looked up tracking did I learn we never received them.What was interesting was that 2 smaller book envelopes were on our porch and one was opened. When I noticed the address was wrong I put them out for the mailman to redeliver without a second thought. Looking back, I wonder if the thief traded the New Testament book that was in the opened package for my Nordstrom purchases. What guts?! I recall the address on the book envelopes being around the 2600 block of 42nd but beyond that I don’t recall noticing the name or whether they were delivered by USPS or UPS.I will talk to our USPS and UPS deliver guys today but thought you might want to put the word out in the neighborhood. Bummer that this is happening here. We even have quite a set of stairs to climb
And this one, with a photo (she sent several but we are posting one):
The blue SUV (Suzuki ?) and female passenger in the pictures were filmed on our home Security cameras stealing packages from our home in Magnolia Friday 8/1 @ 745pm. Drove by slow, backed up and the female got out rang the doorbell to verify we were not home. She then looked around (not up at the camera) and stole the UPS delivery by the front door. She did leave us the phone books… Readers beware. I am not sure if you can publish these pics or not but at least spread the word that package thieves are lurking. Police have been notified and are now looking out for these thieves. No license plate recorded unfortunately.
