(MILL CREEK, WA.) – Talk about rude and uncalled for. It’s one thing for a brazen, nasty, scalawag of a thief to rip off a package that’s been delivered to your porch, but then just to be even more rude he leaves an empty box in its place.
There’s no excuse for that kind of thing.
Mill Creek Police would not mind your help in identifying the poor, misguided fellow you see in the photo at right who they say ripped off two packages from the front porch of a Mill Creek home in the 3200 block of of 145th Place SE on January 26.
Here’s the dude’s MO: he poses as a legit delivery person and carries what appears to be a package with something really cool in it up to the porch but the thing is, it’s really just an empty box which he then drops on the porch after which he picks up the legit packages that have been delivered to said porch.
Can you imagine that? Doesn’t this guy know he won’t get to heaven when he dies if he keeps this sort of thing up? Does he really want to spend eternity in the ugly fires of hell being a crispy critter forever and ever?
The reason you see the guy’s photo is that the owners of the house have one of those spiffy high-res video cameras embedded in their doorbell that captured the entire sordid affair on video for posterity and for all the world to see.
In fact, you can see it here .
If you think you might know who the perp is (white male, about 5-feet 11-inches tall, weighs between 180 and 200 pounds, 35 to 40 years old with brown hair) get on the telly right now and ring up Mill creek Police at 425-337-1115 or leave a tip at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The rude dude was driving (as his perp-mobile) a small blue SUV, unknown license plate.
Time to put this fellow into the local hoosegow so get to tippin’ the police, hear?
