The Harford County Sheriff is trying to identify and locate another “porch pirate” — someone who is allegedly stealing packages off porches in Joppa, according to a news release.
Deputies believe the person took at least three packages between 1:30 and 2 p.m. on Wednesday. The alleged thefts occurred in in the 1000 block of Emmerick Drive, 500 block of Terrapin Terrace and 400 block of Hardin Drive.
One of the packages was stolen within 20 minutes of delivery, according to deputies.
In this week’s incidents in Joppa, the sheriff’s office is using social media — its Facebook and Twitter accounts — to try and identify the alleged thief, asking residents, “Do you recognize the suspect?”
They are also reminding residents that if they know a package is being delivered, have someone home — or at least available — to get it off your porch, or have it delivered somewhere secure.
