Salem Police Narrowing Search for Package Thief [VIDEO]
Here's a quick update about a recent theft that sparked a conversation among our readers about package safety in Salem.
Earlier this month, Salem resident Bill Bushong asked us to publish this video footage of a woman stealing a package containing a $300, 64-pound birdcage off of his front porch on Mason Street.
When we checked back in with Bushong Wednesday afternoon, he was happy to report that a Salem Police detective said the ongoing investigation is now "focused on one person."
"My guess is that this person thought it was a flat-screen TV or something since the box looks similar," Bushong said. "And at 60-70 pounds (65 to be exact), it feels about right as well."
We'll keep you updated.
