The Needham Police Department is on the hunt for a suspect linked to a series of package thefts that struck the Pollard Middle School neighborhood early this morning. Security cameras captured the individual, who is now a person of interest, during the thefts that occurred around 2:15 am. Authorities are urging residents to come forward with any footage that may have caught the perpetrator in the act, especially if their security systems noted any movement around that time.

Walking off with packages that are not his own, the community was alerted to keep an eye out for the individual. The local police are urging anyone with information or relevant home surveillance video to direct message them as part of the ongoing investigation.

While the search intensifies, the police have not yet released further details about the suspect's identity or whether there has been any recovery of stolen goods. In the meantime, residents have been put on high alert, advised to secure their parcels and consider alternative delivery options where possible. Recognizing the individual carrying the Roche Brothers bag may just be the break needed in the case. The Needham Police Department's shared imagery with the hope that someone will recognize the subject and provide information leading to an apprehension.
