Lufkin PD seeking public's help in finding FedEx package thief

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Investigators with the Lufkin Police Department are seeking the public's help in finding a man suspected of stealing packages from the local Federal Express facility in February.

In February, a loss-prevention employee contacted the Lufkin Police Department, and said that on at least two separate occasions packages had disappeared from the company's distribution center on Spence Street.

According to the Lufkin Crime Stoppers Web page, the company's package tracking software showed that the parcels had arrived at the Lufkin facility but had never left. After the investigation eliminated human error among its employees and determined that the packages disappeared during nighttime hours, it became obvious that they were looking for a burglar.

LPD Detectives set up a thermal imaging camera to monitor the most likely point of entry into the building. The camera captured video of a suspect climbing the facility's fence and "defeating the locking mechanism of a loading bay door." A camera inside the building snapped a still picture of the suspect stealing packages.

The still image shows a young black man wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

Go to the Lufkin Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week page to see the video.

Anyone with any information about this alleged package thief should call the Lufkin Crime Stoppers hot line at (936) 639 TIPS or leave an anonymous tip on the Web site. It is not necessary for people to give their names, and any information that leads to an arrest in the case may lead to a cash reward of up to $1,000.
