Seattle police arrest 4 in package snatchings

SEATTLE — Police credit sharp-eyed residents of West Seattle with helping them arrest four people suspected of stealing packages from front porches.

The Seattle Times reports that a woman at one house reported seeing a man run off with a UPS package late Friday morning and get into a white Toyota van. At mid-afternoon, a woman was seen jumping out of the same van at a different residence.

An officer spotted the van, pulled it over and found three men, one woman and several packages. The packages have been returned.

Officers are still trying to determine the owners of a pile of objects also found in the van.

The four people were booked into the King County Jail for investigation in the robberies and for outstanding warrants.
