Over the course of a month, someone stole several packages from the Fairfield Apartments on Stamford Drive.

The 32-year-old victim told police he had a number of packages delivered to his front doorstep between Sept. 5 and Sept. 29, and three were stolen, according to Lt. Fred Nelson, a spokesman for the Newark Police Department.

The missing items, worth a total of $267.99, included computer equipment, two purses and a power tool.

Nelson reminded residents to take precautions when having packages delivered: have it delivered when someone will be home, track the package, require a signature on delivery and consider investing in a security camera.

Anyone with information about the theft should contact Officer Megan Keating at 302-366-7100 ext. 3489 or MKeating@newark.de.us.
