    Search for Porch Pirates in Woodbridge

    Police are searching for package thieves who have struck several homes in Woodbridge.

    Police in Woodbridge are investigating after several packages were stolen from front porches on Wednesday afternoon and they have released video in hopes of making an arrest. 

    Several UPS, FedEx and U.S. Postal Services packages were stolen between noon and 3 p.m. on Wednesday, according to police. 

    Investigators have security camera footage from one of the victims and it shows a four-door tan Oldsmobile Alero with a spoiler and a plastic bag over the driver’s side window. It appears to have Connecticut license plates. 

    The video shows two people in the vehicle – and the front-seat passenger gets out of the car and rings the doorbell. When he believes no one is home, he takes the packages and places them in his vehicle, police said.
