FREMONT -- Police are asking the public's help in locating a suspected package thief caught on surveillance video stealing an item off an Ardenwood resident's porch.
The theft was reported on Monday and took place on March 6 at a home on the 5400 block of Alamo Terrace, said police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques.
Although the residents were not home when the theft took place, a home video surveillance system captured the incident, Bosques said.
At 1:30 p.m. on the day of the theft, UPS delivered a package to the victim's doorstep, police said. Then at 5:35 p.m., a man approached and took the package, police said.
He was described as 20 to 30 years old with short black hair and almost bald. He wore sunglasses, a dark-colored hoodie with the lettering "SAN" written on it and a light-colored, long-sleeve, plaid button-up hoodie.
During a door-to-door canvass, a neighbor told officers that he noticed a 1990s Nissan Maxima parked in front of the victim's home on the day of the theft.
The Nissan's driver was described as an Asian woman, 30 to 40 years old with short hair. The woman stayed in the vehicle and drove off after the theft, police said.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Officer Rod Little via email at Rlittle@fremont.gov or call 510-790-6800 and enter badge number 2398 when prompted.
