Guelph police say a Kitchener man has been charged after they responded to a report of someone stealing packages off porches early Wednesday morning.
Officers were called to the area of Victoria and Eastview roads just before 3:30 a.m. after a witness saw someone swiping parcels.
A man who matched the suspect’s description was arrested on Glenburnie Drive.
Police said officers then followed the man’s footprints in the snow and found Amazon packages in the backyard of a nearby house.
A 35-year-old man is charged with theft under $5,000, possession of stolen property and trespassing.
He is scheduled to make a court appearance in Guelph on Feb. 18, 2022.
