Officers nab suspect in Northern Liberties package thefts


Police sources tell FOX29 officers have nabbed the man accused of stealing packages from homes in Northern Liberties.

Home surveillance caught the suspect in the act along the 800 block of Lawrence Street last Friday.

Investigators arrested the man today at 5th and Poplar Streets.


Police say he had someone's packages on him at the time, and that the packages stolen last week contained donated coats, hats and scarves that were meant for children in need.

FOX 29's Dave Schratwieser reported on those thefts earlier this week.
