Police search for package thief with hook for hand

April 24, 2017 - 6:49 am

ATLANTA (AP) — Surveillance video has recorded a man with a prosthetic hand stealing multiple packages from the Loring Heights neighborhood in northwest Atlanta over the past few weeks.

WSB-TV reports (http://2wsb.tv/2olPOqM) that the video shows the man has a hook for a left hand. Neighbor Daily Dewling, who had a package stolen last Sunday, says the crimes haven't been violent, but are costly and unnerving. She says neighbors are installing surveillance cameras on their property or sending packages elsewhere until the man is caught.

Police have not announced any arrests.
