On Dec. 14, the staff at Staybridge Suites at 8101 E. Northfield Blvd. were cleaning rooms when they discovered several boxes/packages with different names and addresses in one of the rooms. They called Denver Police and our detectives responded. The solo female guest of the room was subsequently arrested for possession of the stolen packages. It appears the victims of the stolen packages were all Stapleton/Northfield residents and we are actively working on contacting the owners of the packages. And, of course, a big thanks to the staff at the hotel for their observations and actions that led to this arrest—as well as the recovery of several gifts!
The holidays are here. Many of us are ordering more items online. Please remember that package thefts are crimes of opportunity. Suspects will follow delivery trucks and watch for drop-offs. It has been reported that suspects may sit on porches. Report any suspicious activity. Together we can stop porch pirates. A big thanks to all of you for keeping a watchful eye on each other.
