This past Thursday evening, one of Murrieta’s finest responded to a call where a victim advised packages had been taken from their front porch. The victim had video footage showing the subject in the act. Later that day, the same officer that initially responded received notification that the same subject was back in the same area, near the victim’s home.

The Officer made contact with the subject and in fact recognized this individual from the video. The subject denied the whole incident but when the Officer verified the same subject and same car in fact that was in the video, it was game over. The subject was arrested for grand theft and was taken into custody for booking.
