On Oct. 25, the suspect walked off with a recently delivered package at a house located in the 2500 block of South Xavier Street, the Denver Police Department said.

The white vehicle in the picture left immediately after the suspect was out of the camera’s view.

The suspect has been identified in other package thefts across the metro area.

Authorities said some of the thieves appear to follow delivery drivers around and then take the packages.

An effective way to stop it from happening is to make sure someone is at the house to accept the delivery when it takes place.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
