Police investigating string of package thefts in Cumberland County

Local

Police say they do believe a string of thefts are related, as they happened in both North Middleton and Middlesex Townships. 

North Middleton Police are looking for a man seen in surveillance photos. Detectives say he may be related to a handful of porch thefts. 

Police received three reports of stolen packages on August 16th. In neighboring Middlesex Township, there were also reports on thefts on the same day. 

“A lot of vigilance is needed, when they know that there is a package coming. Especially now that we have people just coming up to random houses and and taking them off porches,” said Det. Matthew Johnson, North Middleton Township Police. 

Police recommend sending items to work, or notifying a neighbor that could pickup your package until you get home. 

If you know who the suspect is in that picture, you’re asked to contact the North Middleton Township Police Department.
