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.

Package thieves usually strike during working hours when many homes are empty.

The police department is urging residents to have their packages delivered where someone can receive it in person like a friend or a neighbor’s home.

If you are ordering a package online, choose a specific time for it to be delivered at your doorstep.

If you are buying from a large retailer, request to send the package to a local store for pick-up.

If you recognize the man in the photos, call Officer Rasmussen at 650-780-7100.
