CORONA – Package theft is becoming the theft of choice for the sticky-fingered types who live amongst Inland Empire residents. In the past, this was a safer method of theft, where thieves felt the risk of getting caught was low. In recent years household surveillance equipment has become more readily available to homeowners at an affordable price. The lower cost coupled with the increase in package thefts has lead many homeowners to make the purchase.
On Friday, February 3, 2017, a package was stolen from the front porch of a home in the 1000 block of Topaz (Near Lincoln Avenue and Olive Street). The Corona Police shared a surveillance photo on social media and was shared by those following them.
The two pictured were suspected in the theft and were recognized by a nearby resident as people selling magazine subscriptions. A week later, on Friday, February 10, 2017, the suspects were located and cited for Petty Theft after officers received information from residents and local business owners. These informants told authorities that they recognized the suspects from the photos and saw them on West Sixth Street and, later, in the area of Buena Vista Avenue and Ontario Avenue.
Cartonieo McBride, a 28-year-old Indiana man, and Jamye Wade, a 31-year-old Indiana woman were located in the 2500 block of Galisteo Street. Both were cited and released with a notice to appear in court on a future date.
