A 47-year-old Alexandria man was arrested last month for allegedly stealing an Amazon package after delivering food to an Arlington apartment complex.

On Saturday, March 18, the victim reported to APD that a pink Amazon package containing a silver Apple keyboard was stolen from the mailbox area of an apartment in the 2900 block of S. Columbus Street in Arlington.

Police reviewed security footage “that clearly shows a delivery driver entering the complex at approximately 0100 hours and exiting with the package in question,” police said in a recently released search warrant affidavit.

The suspect was identified “after viewing a mugshot from a previous arrest that matched with the suspect in the video,” police said in the search warrant affidavit.

Police then met the suspect on March 19, and he wore an outfit that matched what he allegedly wore the previous night. The suspect was arrested on March 24, charged with petit larceny and released on $1,000 unsecured bond.

The suspect goes to court for the misdemeanor on April 28.
