A thief was caught on video Monday stealing packages from an Alhambra home.
A home security video shows a thief swiping three packages off the porch of a house on the 800 block of Sierra Vista Avenue, the Alhambra Police Department posted Thursday on Facebook. The theft occurred around 12:30 p.m., about 40 minutes after the packages were delivered.
The suspect approached the house on a bicycle, according to Alhambra PD. He is described as male, late teens to early 20s, with a light complexion.
Package theft occurs three to four times a month in the city, Alhambra PD said. "If you are expecting packages to be delivered, consider asking the delivery company to get a signature when the package is delivered rather than leaving the item near the front door," the agency cautioned. "You may also consider getting a P.O. Box and have the packages delivered there."
