Alert Neighbor Spots Hamilton Mill Package Thief

Posted Feb. 8, 2013

The thieves got away, but, thanks to an alert neighbor, a stolen package was recovered.

On Feb. 4, police were dispatched to a theft in progress call. A Hamilton Mill resident had called police to advise he had witnessed two male suspects take a package off a neighbor’s porch.

The man followed the suspect’s green Ford F150 and saw them pull behind a business on Hog Mountain Road before fleeing the location. An officer located the stolen package behind the business.

According to the neighbor, the two suspects were white males in their late teens or early twenties. The neighbor was able to provide police with a tag number of the suspect vehicle.

The officer later spoke with the owner of the package who confirmed that she had not given anyone permission to retrieve the package from her residence. The package, according to the owner, contained approximately $100 worth of marketing materials.

The case is listed as active.
