Maryland police say child used to steal packages from porches

Authorities in Maryland have released video that shows a young girl being used to steal packages from a porch.

The Harford County Sheriff’s Office released the video and stated the incident happened on Nov. 30 in the 400 block of Inez Court in Bel Air, Maryland.

“We always warn you about package Grinches this time of year, but it’s hard to believe that a Grinch decided to use Cindy Lou Who this year to steal packages,” the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook. “Who uses a child in this manner?!”

The sheriff’s office urged residents to be aware of their surroundings and to report any suspicious activity.

If you have any information that could aid detectives in their investigation, you’re urged to call Deputy Matthew Turner at (410) 612-1717.
