Suspected package thief in Sammamish caught on video; victim posts 50 fliers with pic in area

SAMMAMISH, Wash.  -- Car prowls and package thefts skyrocket during the holiday season and police say it doesn’t matter where you live -- anyone could be targeted.

Katrina Spencer says she won't stand for it and she's making sure everyone in her neighborhood knows about it.

“It’s definitely not in my personality to just sit back and let things happen,” says Katrina.

The King County Sheriff's Office is investigating after Katrina's surveillance cameras captured a woman stealing shoes from her doorstep the morning of November 1.  Then the woman is scene prowling Katrina’s cars in her driveway.

Katrina has posted over 50 fliers around her neighborhood with the woman’s photo.

In Pierce County, Jeff Fabiani feels just as violated. Tacoma police are investigating after his surveillance cameras captured thieves stealing $500 worth of Christmas gifts off his front porch Tuesday.

“It’s an invasion of privacy.  I would say the biggest thing is just be on the lookout, be aware, and don't be ignorant to the fact that it’s not going to happen to you or your neighbors or your area,” says Jeff.

Police suggest having packages delivered when you know you're going to be home or have a neighbor pick them up. And never leave anything of value in your car, not even the trunk is a safe spot.

If you have any information on the Sammamish suspect, the King County Sheriff's Office asks that you contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. You can remain anonymous and you could receive up to a $1,000 cash reward if your information leads to an arrest.
