REDWOOD CITY (BCN) — Redwood City police are asking for help identifying a package theft suspect shown in a video police released Thursday.
The victim’s video security system captured images of the suspect in a black shirt and tan shorts taking two packages from a home in the 600 block of Dory Lane in Redwood Shores at 1:45 p.m. March 30, police said.
Video security systems are useful to officers in solving crimes and a variety of systems are available, according to police.
To reduce the chance of having packages stolen, residents are encouraged to sign up for delivery alerts, report suspicious activity to police, install a locking mailbox and when out of town, ask a neighbor to accept and hold packages.
Anyone who can identify the suspect in the video is being asked to call Detective Mark Alifano at (650) 780-7676.
