GPS baited package thwarts suspects
The Arcadia Police Department continues to be proactive in efforts to combat package theft. APD has made numerous theft arrests since they began placing GPS equipped bait packages throughout the City.
Some of these theft arrests have led to additional charges and investigations. Officers were alerted to a package having been taken in the 500 block of Santa Rosa, they quickly located the suspects still driving in a nearby neighborhood. The suspects were stopped and detained without incident.
Not only was the stolen package found inside the suspect’s vehicle, but Officers found numerous items of stolen mail, identification, a master key for mailboxes, and tools used to “fish” mail from a mailbox.
