WESTLAND (WWJ) – With the help of the public, Westland police say they have identified a woman caught on camera stealing a package off a porch a few days before Christmas.

Security video shows the suspect walking onto the porch of a home in the 39100-block Hayward Street, near Hix and Koppernick, at around 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 21. She picked up and package, and walks away.

Police described the suspect as a white female, 20-30 years old with glasses and her dark hair pulled into a bun.  She was wearing a grey coat and pants.

Just hours after posting a video clip to Facebook and sending it to the media, Westland police detectives have received multiple tips about the woman’s identity.

“We want to sincerely thank everyone who shared this video and submitted tips,” police said in a statement. “With your help we have not only identified a suspect, but hopefully discouraged similar crimes in the future.”

No information was immediately available concerning charges in this case. The woman’s name is being withheld pending an arraignment.
