A thief was caught red-handed, but got away after attempting to steal a package from the front porch of a home on Delaware Dr. in Concord on Monday.
Here’s the information from the victim:
Today around 3pm I opened my door and this guy had a freshly delivered package in his hands and was walking away from my porch. The doorbell had rang about two minutes earlier, and since I knew it was probably the package delivery person I didn’t answer it right away because I was dealing with a plumbing problem. When I saw the thief I screamed at him and he looked at me, dropped the package and ran. I was inside so I didn’t get a look to see if he had a vehicle or not. He ran down my walkway towards Clayton Rd. on Delaware Dr.
He was a dirty looking white guy, bald on top with blonde hair on the sides. I only got a quick look at his face because when he saw me he booked it out of there. I think he might have seen the delivery truck and waited a minute to see if anybody was going to open the door, and when I didn’t he probably though nobody was home. What a jerk.
I just wanted to let others know to be careful. I was lucky that I got my package back but others won’t be so lucky.
Thanks for the email. We’ll be hearing more and more of this as it gets closer to Christmas. Don’t be a victim, use caution and always have the package delivered to a trusted place where you know somebody will either sign for it right away or keep it until you arrive.
