Man steals package from Miami doorstep

Same thief possibly stole pill bottles from neighbor's home, police say

MIAMI – Miami police are searching for a man who was captured on surveillance video last week stealing a package from a woman's doorstep.

The incident was reported about 4 p.m. last Thursday in the 3300 block of Southwest 17th Street.

Home-surveillance video shows the man walking up to the front door and walking away with a small package.

While detectives were speaking with the victim, a second victim approached the officers and gave them an open package, which contained pill bottles.

That person told officers that five bottles were missing from the package.

Authorities said they believe the two cases might be related.

Anyone with information about the thief is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
