Spokane Police Looking For Victims Of Holiday Thieves

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police are looking for victims of two men suspected of stealing Fed-Ex and UPS packages off the porches of Spokane residents. Officer Tim Moses tells KHQ that in the past few days Spokane Police have received numerous reports of cars following delivery trucks and stealing the packages immediately after they had been delivered.

Police began patrolling the lower South Hill searching for suspects and finally caught a break when a citizen was able to write down the license plate number of a suspected vehicle. Police located the car at a pawn shop on the north side of town where the suspects pawned a bright green jacket. When the men came out, police arrested one of the men on a traffic charge. Authorities believe the coat to be stolen, however they don't have a victim to tie to the theft.

Moses believes the two men are responsible for other package thefts, but emphasizes that the Spokane Police need residents who they feel may have been victimized to call crime check and report the incident.

Moses also added that these kinds of thefts are a growing trend, especially around the holidays, and urges residents to report any suspicious activity.

If you haven't received a package and feel that you may have been a victim of theft, you are asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
