LYNDHURST – A home security camera video captured a man police believe stole a package from the front porch of a Lyndhurst home Saturday afternoon.

“People do tend to ride the streets looking for packages sitting out in the open on front porches,” said Det. Michael Scipione.

Detectives say with so many packages and gifts arriving at homes this time of year, people need to remember to get boxes off their porches before someone else does.

Scipione noted that the man in the video was able to grab the package in “a matter of seconds.“

Police also want to remind people to lock their doors and windows. Last week, more than a dozen cars were broken into and four homes were burglarized.

Suspects took purses and wallets left in kitchen areas and electronic devices from cars.

Those living in the area say the community is normally quiet and very safe. They say they will continue to look out for each other.
