Thief swiping packages from porches across metro Detroit

WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Residents in Waterford Township are on edge after a number of packages have been stolen from several homes.

A homeowner with surveillance cameras installed outside their home captured one of the robberies.

“I bought the cameras because last year when we registered for our wedding we had multiple packages that were stolen from our front porch,” the homeowner said.

Minutes after a delivery truck dropped off a package to the home on Wednesday, the thief swooped in and took it. Inside the package was organic deodorant.

The thief is wanted in other area of metro Detroit.

After the homeowner posted the footage to social media, it spread and was shared more than a thousand times.

The thief identified himself to police Thursday morning and is expected to turn himself in on Friday.
