Rocklin Police Warn of Package Theft

On Wednesday, December 11, 2013, at about 3:30 p.m., a witness observed a vehicle traveling southbound on Rawhide Rd. (toward Midas Ave.) in a slow manner.  The vehicle then stopped in the street directly in front of a residence.  A male suspect exited the front passenger seat and walked up to the front porch.  He appeared to be looking around, as if checking to see if anyone was watching him.

The suspect appeared to knock on the door to see if anyone was home. The suspect then took 3 packages left by the front door and went back into the vehicle.  The vehicle then left the scene.

The witness described the suspect vehicle as a light green 1980's -1990's Ford Thunderbird. The rear driver's side tire had a smaller tire than the others, with a yellow mark across it, as if it was an emergency/spare tire. The male suspect that took the packages was described as possibly being a white male juvenile wearing a grey hoodie sweatshirt. The driver was only described as being a female.  There are no further details.  Please be on the lookout for this vehicle and contact the Rocklin Police Department at (916) 625-5400 if you see it.   

The Rocklin Police Department is warning residents about theft of packages delivered to residential front door/porch areas.

Please be extra vigilant about retrieving delivered packages. Ask trusted neighbors or friends to assist in retrieving delivered packages, and secure them as quickly as possible. We have been seeing an increase in these types of thefts.

This time of year, suspects often follow delivery trucks around town and steal packages after they are delivered.  Be vigilant and remove packages as soon as possible so someone else doesn't take them.  Work with your neighbors to pick up packages whenever possible so they can be safely delivered when they return home.
