3-D VICE - Package Theft Arrest

On today's date, members of VICE were conducting covert operations in the area of 11th & Florida Avenue, NW when they observed an adult male suspect take a package from a residence porch in a suspicious manner. The suspect was stopped and denied knowledge. The victim was contacted and confirmed the package belonged to them. The suspect was arrested and charged with "Theft II - Package" and "Receiving Stolen Property."
Friendly Reminder: Please ask your mail carrier or private shipping company to ensure delivery is signed for and accepted, which greatly reduces the chance of you becoming an inadvertent victim of package theft. If I know that I'm not going to be home, I sometimes allow my neighbor to accept for me as well. Good reason to make friends with your neighbors. Just a thought.
"If you See Something, Say Something !"
Have a safe weekend.
