Thursday, February 8th


An officer was dispatched to Carlton St on Thursday evening, at approximately 6 PM, for a package theft. The victim told police that he had noticed a package addressed to him in the unlocked foyer of his building. Upon picking up the package, the top was ripped open and it's contents had been stolen.

Around 9 PM, an officer was dispatched to Kent St. for a suspicious package that was found on a resident's front lawn. The reporting party noticed the packages, ripped open, on his lawn about an hour prior. The ripped packages were not those of the reporting party but were addressed to a Francis St. residence and an additional residence on Kent St.

Officers spoke with the owners of the opened packages found on the Kent St. lawn. The residents of Francis and the second Kent St. address confirmed that their packages had been ordered, delivered, but never received.

Later that evening, officers were dispatched to an address on Newell Rd. for a package theft. A package and a bag of shoes had been stolen off of the front porch of the residence. Upon leaving Newell Rd, an officer noticed that a large amount of shoes had been dumped at the Lawrence School playground.

At this time, the officer also noticed two, ripped-open packages, located near the rear of the school. The two ripped packages found were addressed to different residential address, also located on Newell Rd. The officer spoke with the resident, who stated that her packages had been scheduled to be delivered that day but had never arrived.

In total, there were 6 reports of package thefts on Thursday, February 8th. Police are investigating the incidents.
