Redmond and Bellevue police are asking for the public’s help to identify a suspected package thief who has targeted homes in both cities, according to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound.
In Redmond on July 12, the victim’s security camera captured the suspect stealing a package off the front door step of his residence located on Northeast 117th Street. The suspect was driving an older model black Volvo four-door sedan.
There have also been three reported package thefts in Bellevue since the beginning of the year.
The suspect was described as a white male about 30 years old, closely cropped hair style and facial stubble. He was wearing a yellow shirt, dark pants and tan construction-style boots and was carrying a clipboard. This suspect and vehicle match the suspect in the package thefts in Bellevue. In each incident, he was carrying the same clipboard and appears to be wearing the same shirt in one of the incidents. Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000.
