Police Arrest Brazen Package Thief Caught on Video
Back in September he was seen casually stepping over the gate and onto a Germantown porch in the wee hours of the morning. He was captured on video pulling the door to see if it was unlocked, bending down and grabbing a package, while looking into the windows of the home. He then took out a knife and nonchalantly cut open the package to see what was inside.
And thanks to the help of a tip from the public, police now know who he is — and he's been arrested.
Montgomery County Police announced that they have arrested a man in connection with that package theft from a Germantown home back in September.
On Tuesday, Oct. 30, 5th District Patrol Investigations Unit arrested Brian Andrew Davis, age 25, of the 500 block of Pacer Drive in Hyattsville, with theft. On September 25, Davis was observed on
theft. On September 25, Davis was observed on surveillance video stealing a package from the front door area of a home located in the 18900 block of Fountain Hills Drive in Germantown.
During the investigation, detectives released surveillance video of the suspect to the media and public and received multiple tips which led to the identification of Davis as the suspect.
Davis was arrested on the strength of a criminal warrant charging him with one count of theft: $100 to under $1,500. He was transported to the Central Processing Unit and is currently being held on a $500 bond.
The Montgomery County Police department thanks the tipsters who provided the information that led to Davis’ identification and arrest.
