Package Thief Caught on Video Stealing From Apartment Building

Hoboken police are looking for a man wanted for stealing items from city apartment buildings.

Hoboken Police hope footage from a surveillance camera will lead to the arrest of a thief who has been stealing packages from city apartment buildings for months.

The man is seen on video scoping out the building, then walking into the lobby behind a tenant, waits until the coast is clear and then loads packages into a plastic garbage bag.

Police advise other options to help prevent these kind of thefts, including using a Post Office Box and requiring a signature for delivery, according to CBS New York.

Hey at least they are 'looking', although I assume that is a metaphorically 'looking'. Every time I called the lazy Hoboken PD with video and such about a theft in my old building they never cared, rarely called back, and made appts they never kept. Once the guy even dropped his ID, and nothing...I had to go find the guy, confront him and get my property back. Oh and once a man broke in, slept in our hall, and attacked a female resident, again nothing. I'd love to hear more about this 'looking'.
