A Flushing resident’s home continues to be a hot spot for petty thieves looking to pilfer packages.

The resident, who reached out to QNS twice before about stolen packages, says not even additional security measures and signage have dissuaded a new perpetrator from stealing his property.

Video surveillance captured at the premises on June 30 at 2:23 p.m. shows a male perpetrator entering the property through a front gate. The individual then quickly runs up the stoop, grabs a package off the top of the mailbox and leaves through the same front gate.

When the homeowner received a delivery notification around 11 a.m. and an alert from the motion-sensing camera a few hours later, he knew something was again awry.

After the other incidents in April and December 2016, the frustrated homeowner, who had security cameras installed when the problem first began, decided to install a fence, as well as a large “Private Property, No Trespassing” sign. Still, he said, the problem persists.

The resident has filed a report with the 107th Precinct.

“So, FYI to the perp,” the homeowner said. “This is petit larceny is a Class A Misdemeanor in NY State. You will be facing one year in jail.”

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the precinct at 718-969-5100.
