SMOKING PACKAGE THIEFWANTED IN SEATTLE —
You know what bugs me the most about this lowlife thief Seattle police are hoping you can help identify? Just how calm and cool she is about going onto someone’s porch — their own private property — and casually stealing a package while smoking a cigarette.

“It’s a very bold effort by a very brazen crook,” says Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound. “We’re not blaming the victim at all, but please, please, please if you order something from UPS, FedEx, the U.S. Postal Service, make sure you have someone pick up the package or make sure you’re there, in person to pick it up.”

Detectives think she’s in her 30’s, 5’8″ to 5’9″, with a medium build, a tattoo on her right bicep and was wearing a silver-colored watch and necklace.

She was pulling a small shopping cart.
