Officers looking for package thief snatching from doorsteps

Schererville police are searching for this man, who allegedly stole delivered packages from the front porch of two homes. 

SCHERERVILLE — Police are looking for a man they say has been caught on camera swiping packages from front porches of a Schererville neighborhood.

Between noon and 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, police were called to two separate residences in the Prairie Estates neighborhood, Schererville police Cmdr. Jeff Cook said. Residents reported that packages had been stolen from the front porches of their houses. One of the neighbors had video evidence of the man snatching the packages, which was turned over to police.

The suspect was described as a white or Hispanic man with a thin build and dark facial hair, police said. He was wearing a dark hoodie and cut-up blue jeans, a white T-shirt and gym shoes. In addition, the man was driving a black Kia 4-door sedan and the license plate number is unknown.

Cook reminded residents to report any suspicious activity to police.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Detective Matt Djukic at 219-322-5000 or to call the Crime Tip Hotline at 219-865-4646.
