In Woodhaven, a man is wanted for stealing a package from a front porch.

The Woodhaven Residents’ Block Association (WRBA) is seeking the public’s help in catching a one-armed thief who stole a package off a resident’s porch near 94th Street and 86th Avenue.

About two minutes after a UPS package was left on the porch, a silver minivan pulled over across the street, said the WRBA. After about seven minutes, the minivan driver, who appears to be missing his right arm, backed up the car, exited it, walked up to the porch and stole the package. The crime, which occurred in the late afternoon on Monday, July 23, was caught on surveillance video.

“This is yet another example of how useful video surveillance cameras can be for our neighborhood.  Now we need to put this extremely strong evidence to work and make sure this thief gets caught,” said Ed Wendell, president of the WRBA. “He might be from Woodhaven, or he might be from a nearby neighborhood.  Wherever he’s from, you should let us know if you have any clues, because you might be his next victim.”

If you have any information that could help solve this crime, please contact the WRBA at 718-296-3737 or info@woodhaven-nyc.org. Or you can call the 102nd Precinct at 718-805-3207.
