HESPERIA – A Hesperia resident arrived home after work on Monday expecting a package that he ordered to be on his porch. When he arrived his package containing an approximately $70 ultraviolet light bulb for his saltwater aquarium was nowhere to be found.
A couple of months back, resident Greg Carlos decided to install surveillance cameras after hearing of an increase in package thefts in the area. “This is the first time it has happened at my home, however; I see posts on social media every day about this and mail thefts all over this city,” said Carlos.
Carlos who lives off of Main Street and Peach Avenue like many in recent years has found it to be convenient and cost-effective to order some of the things that he wants and needs online. “The UPS driver delivered at 10:45 a.m. and the package was stolen at 2:52 p.m.,” added Carlos. “I believe they were driving around scoping the neighborhood out for packages.”
The incident was caught on his surveillance showing the suspect walk up to the door, grab the package, and quickly leave in a white early-2000’s Chevy Malibu Maxx wagon. The suspect was the passenger of the vehicle and the driver was not seen.
The incident was reported to the Hesperia Police Department, anyone who witnessed this crime or who can identify the suspect should call (760) 947-1500.
