Police report four incidents in the past two weeks during which packages or goods delivered to the front of homes in Towson have been stolen in the afternoon hours.
According to police reports, on Feb. 14, between 1:30 and 5 p.m., a package containing a men's LLBean jacket and an Edible Arrangement were stolen from two different homes on Picadilly Road.
Then, on Feb. 21, betweem 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., a FedEx package was taken from a house in the 6900 block of Bellona Avenue.
Yesterday, a box from Amazon containing children's toys delivered by UPS to Murdock Road was stolen at around 3 p.m.
Lt. Randy Guraleczka, of the Towson Precinct, said police are asking residents to keep an eye out for suspicious persons on their neighbors' properties and to call 911 if they witness suspicious activity. Police advise that residents take note of the description of those persons and their vehicles.
Guraleczka said on Thursday that police have alerted area neighborhoods and residents, especially those along the Charles Street corridor, about the thefts.
"It's something that we want to put out there because it can happen so quickly and we want people to be aware of it, he said.
