Police are searching for a woman allegedly responsible for stealing 15 packages from a Ridgewood apartment building last month.
On April 2, the woman allegedly entered into the lobby of 803 Wyckoff Ave. and made her way to the unlocked mailroom. Once inside, police says she stole the packages and then fled on foot in an unknown direction.
The theft was later noticed by a 30-year-old male building employee while was reviewing security video around 9 p.m. that evening.
The total value of the packages has not yet been determined, police said.
The woman is described as Hispanic with black hair and is in her 20s or 30s. She was last seen wearing all dark clothing. Surveillance footage shows the woman leaving the mailroom carrying a red backpack.
Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
