Two alleged package thefts are walked into the 106th Precinct after their arrest of Dec. 17.

Two men were arrested in Queens on Sunday when they attempted to steal a package that had been delivered to a local residence.

The suspects, 20-year-old Jose Espinal from Queens and 18-year-old Aron Abud from Brooklyn, allegedly removed a package containing an Xbox left outside of a home on 117th Street near 133rd Avenue in South Ozone Park at around 4 p.m. on Dec. 17, according to police.

Police responded to a 911 call from a witness saying that two males had gotten out of a vehicle, removed the package from the residence, and got back into the car to flee the scene. The officers pulled the vehicle over in front of a home on 114th Place near Sutter Avenue. Authorities said the officers found the package, already opened, inside the vehicle.

Espinal and Abud were charged with petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property. They have yet to appear in court for arraignment, according to the Queens District Attorney’s office.

The NYPD’s 106th Precinct shared the news on Twitter that the package was safely returned to its intended owner.
