Kingston man arrested in connection to package thefts

Kingston Police 3

Kingston Police have charged a man in connection to a number of thefts of packages left at the front of west-end homes. 

A 34-year-old man faces theft charges after police release photos earlier in the week of a suspect wanted in thefts of at least three packages from a west-end neighbourhood, with a security camera able to catch a photo of a suspect. 

Police said after numerous tips from the community the unnamed man was charged with two counts theft under $5000 and two counts of possession of property obtained by crime under $5000. 

Kingston Police ask residents to take extra steps to protect their shipments when they have packages delivered to their homes, particularly ahead of the Christmas season.
