Porch Pirate Wanted By Cops In Manyunk Area

by Alex Lloyd Gross

Stealing is wrong. Stealing an unknown package is downright stupid. You don’t know what is inside. Is it adult diapers? Is is a part for an item you don’t own and cannot identify? A theft, on the 4500 block of Riverside Way was caught on security camera. You can see it below. It happened on January 28,2024 about 5:17 PM. Police just recently released video.

Watch an unknown black male carry a pair of sneakers down Riverside way. He sees a package that was delivered but it is not his. So he looks around, bends down, scoops it up and walks away.

He is described as a black male medium build appears to be in his late teens or early 20’s wearing a dark hooded jacket and gray pants.
