NORTH HUNTINGDON (KDKA) – Police are asking for the public’s help to identify a man accused of stealing packages from homes.

Police in North Huntingdon Township and Irwin received two separate reports of packages being stolen off porches on Monday.

“Yesterday, an individual from the township reported some packages stolen from her front porch,” North Huntingdon Police Officer Thomas Harris said.

Surveillance video from the Altman Farms neighborhood shows the suspect grab the packages and run away.

“No wasting time, none. He was in and out,” Officer Harris said.

Investigators believe the suspect is likely a local. Surveillance video did not show his car.

Police also believe the Altman Farms incident was the suspect’s second alleged theft. He may have hit a neighborhood in Irwin as well.

“Ours happened earlier in the afternoon, around 2:30. The one in Irwin Borough happened an hour beforehand,” Officer Harris said

Police also believe there are probably a few other folks who are missing packages that likely had the same scene play out at their front door.

“People are desperate, they will take what they want,” Officer Harris said.

One way you can avoid this kind of thing from happening to you is to ask a trusted neighbor to come over and grab any deliveries from your house for safe keeping.

Meanwhile, if you happen to know who the person seen taking the packages in the video, you are asked to contact North Huntingdon Police.
