BONNEY LAKE, Wash. - A string of recent package thefts is being investigated by the Bonney Lake Police Department.

Several packages were taken from porches after being dropped by UPS, Fed Ex and the U.S. Postal Service during daylight hours between Nov. 20 and Nov. 26, Officer Todd Green said.

Green said that police had leads on various suspects, including one who can be seen in a surveillance video.

The suspect is a white man in his mid- to late 30s. He was wearing a tan, hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and brown shoes and had short, brown hair and a goatee.

In the video, the man can be seen placing a package on the front porch of a home on 182nd St., then leaving in a mid-90s green-over-grey Jeep Cherokee. According to police, that package had been reported stolen from another address earlier in the day. It contained an air filter for a car. 

"It is believed the suspect was not satisfied with the contents of the package and decided to dispose of it at this particular home," Green said.

The Jeep Cherokee was also seen in the area of other reported package thefts and by a UPS driver, according to Green, who said that there were reports that a white woman was in the passenger seat.

Anyone who sees the vehicle or the suspect or knows anything about the thefts is asked to please contact the Bonney Lake Police Department at 253-863-2218.
