Police are seeking the public's help in identifying a thief of packages from a Woodburn residence doorstep.
The Woodburn Police Department responded to a report of stolen delivered packages in the 400 block of Turnberry Road in Woodburn on Oct. 18.
The suspect was captured on a door bell ring surveillance camera, which alerted the homeowner of the theft.
The video captured the suspect committing the theft around 3:35 p.m. Oct. 18.

The suspect who stole the packages is described as a white or possibly Hispanic male adult, approximately 5'11'' to 6'3'' tall with a heavy build. The suspect arrived as a passenger in a gray Nissan Xterra that was driven by another unknown driver.
The WPD urges homeowners who are expecting package deliveries to follow these tips to prevent package thefts:
• Have packages delivered to your work. Delivering packages to a job increases visibility and reduces the chances that your packages might be swiped unexpectedly.
• Schedule deliveries for times you will be home. This keeps packages from sitting unattended for long periods of time.
• Buddy up with a neighbor.
• Require a signature. This extra insurance ensures that you won't have packages piling up at your door.
