PACKAGE PINCHERS ... Residents expecting to receive at-home package deliveries are being warned to beware of package thieves. A Crescent Park resident who lives near Dana Street and Newell Road saw two youths steal two packages from her front door Monday, Sept. 24. The thefts occurred within 30 seconds of delivery by United Parcel Service at about 6:30 p.m. One thief wore a brown sweatshirt with a hood covering his face; the other wore a blue sweatshirt with a hoodie. Both wore blue jeans and white T-shirts, according to the resident. Palo Alto police searched for and stopped four boys, but they didn't have the parcels. Neighbors later found one box, still sealed, in the bushes across from the victim's house, and the victim reports that she found the other box ripped open and empty.
