Camera records man stealing packages in Capitol Hill


DENVER — Denver Police want Capitol Hill residents to keep an out for a man stealing packages from apartment and condo lobbies.

Video surveillance captured a man going inside a mail room at a building in the neighborhood.

Police said he would use bolt cutters to cut lock boxes, then use the keys to get inside the building common area.

“Knowing there’s a thief around stealing this stuff, that’s very scary and alarming,” said Victoria Tepliz, Capitol Hill resident.

Long-time neighbors said this is nothing new for them.

“Yeah it happened, it’s been an ongoing issue, I guess for the last month or so,” said a Capitol Hill resident.

Some even went the extra mile to protect themselves and their belongings.

“I’ve had a P.O. box since I’ve lived here because living in a city you need to be at least a little concerned, I would think,” said Gwyn Stitcher.

Police said this is still an on-going investigation. If you see this man, call 911 immediately.
