BSO: Two Arrested For Package Theft In Lauderhill

Two Arrested For Stealing Packages Delivered To Residences In Lauderhill

Lauderhill, FL – Boca Post (BocaPost.com) — Broward Sheriffs Office told Boca Post today that two individuals were arrested after being caught stealing packages from porches and pawning the goods.

From BSO:

Detectives with the Broward Sheriff’s Office Burglary Apprehension Team (B.A.T.) on Wednesday worked alongside the Fort Lauderdale Police Department to arrest a pair of suspected package thieves.
During the investigation on Wednesday, a BSO sergeant observed one of the suspects, Javon James, remove packaged items from a residence in Lauderhill. The items stolen included a heating pad, a smartphone screen protector, a blender and an extension cord. Immediately following the theft, detectives witnessed the thieves head to a pawn shop where the female suspect, Shenara Lindo, went inside with an item and walked out with a receipt.
Detectives arrested James and Lindo a short time later and recovered several of the stolen items in their vehicle.
As a result of the investigation, detectives in BSO’s Lauderdale Lakes District arrested the pair for committing a package theft in their city on Monday. Fort Lauderdale Police arrested Lindo Wednesday in connection with a similar crime that occurred in their city last fall.
The investigation revealed that Lindo would drive James through neighborhoods in Broward County were he stole packages off of victims’ front porches. Once the items were stolen, Lindo would travel to a pawn shop and pawn the stolen items. The investigation into the pair’s activities is ongoing.
James and Lindo were booked into the Broward Main Jail on Wednesday. They each face multiple felony charges.
There are several steps individuals can take to avoid becoming a victim of package thieves. Investigators advise having your items shipped to your office, scheduling a delivery for a time that you’ll be at home, using a secure drop-off site provided by the delivery company or asking a neighbor to pick up your packages if you’re not at home.
