Greenfield Police recover 175 stolen items after arresting package theft suspect

GREENFIELD, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Police say they found about 175 stolen property items after arresting a 31-year-old man in connection with a number of package thefts in Greenfield and Milwaukee County. 

According to Greenfield Police, the suspect was stopped and taken into custody after a sergeant with the department recognized the suspect vehicle based on surveillance footage that was captured at a victim's home. 

Police say their investigation is ongoing and they are trying to identify any additional victims. 

“A lot of people at the Greenfield Police Department have thrown around the “Grinch” word, which might be appropriate,” Greenfield Police Sgt. Robert Austin said. “I’m just happy he’s not going to be stealing any more packages because a guy who tried to ruin Christmas for a lot of people will probably be spending Christmas in jail now.”

If you believe you may be a victim of a package theft, you're asked to call Greenfield Police at 414-761-5301.
