first_img Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy 6 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it The Grinch, who is stealing packages off front porches this Christmas season, has struck again.This time, the South Pasadena Police Department issued a crime bulletin for Dec. 12- 18 reporting that on December 17, a citizen discovered torn and opened shipping boxes in the carport of an apartment complex in the 300 block of Raymondale.A close inspection of the boxes showed they were originally delivered to an apartment complex a block away, in the 1800 block of State St.The case of the package-stealing Grinch was first discovered early this month when a surveillance camera caught a woman stealing a package off a front doorstep of a South Pasadena resident.The thievery was discovered after the resident got suspicious that a package she was expecting last month failed to arrive. Upon checking her security video, she saw a woman stealing her package off her front porch.The police have made the video public in the hope that someone might recognize the thief and alert the authorities.Authorities then called the suspect as the “Grinch” based on the devious, anti-holiday spirit fictional character created by Dr. Seuss.The woman is being linked to two other thefts that were reported in the neighborhood on the same day. The police are asking the public cooperation in identifying the woman caught on the video. Any information about the woman should be given directly to the South Pasadena police.The police also advised residents to send their packages to their work addresses especially if they will be away from home for several days to avoid being victimized by thieves.
