REDWOOD CITY (KRON)—Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man accused of stealing a package from a porch in Redwood City.
The incident happened on Sept. 14 in a neighborhood just off El Camino Real.
A man was spotted stealing a package from a porch, according to police.
The suspect had paint on his hands, shirt and shorts and has tattoos on both his arms.
