LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Even with cameras everywhere, Lexington police continue to take multiple reports of packages being stolen from front porches.
One of the more recent ones happened on April 11 in the 1800 block of Endon Drive near Lexington’s Eastland neighborhood. Video from the victim’s doorbell camera shows a man, whom police described as white or Hispanic, jumping out of his car, quickly walking to the front porch, and stealing the package.
These types of crimes take just seconds to pull off and would be tough for detectives to investigate, if not for the great video victims are able to provide.
“It’s everything to the investigation,” said Crime Stoppers Coordinator detective Anthony Delimpo. “Without it, I don’t know what leads we’d have without knocking on doors and talking to neighbors who may or may not have seen anything. This day in age with technology, everybody has cameras. Businesses, homes, they’re everywhere and these are vital in solving these cases and I think we’ll likely solve this one because of it.”
