Across Dickinson's hundreds of miles of residential streets travel dozens of delivery trucks as they set about delivering the many gifts that will fill the spaces beneath Christmas trees for loved ones to open. With each delivery, piles of packages sit unattended on porches and driveways — beacons to the criminal element of Dickinson as reports of package theft flood Dickinson Police Department's non-emergency lines.
Now DPD are asking for the community's help in identifying the perpetrators of two recent thefts caught on camera.
The first suspect remains unknown, but has been spotted driving a White Dodge Caliber, pictured.
The second series of thefts have been perpetrated by two suspects, a male and female who have stolen packages from doorsteps in the city over the previous week and were seen driving a dark colored pickup truck.
Det. Sgt. Kylan Klauzer of the DPD said that most of these incidents occur when people are not at home and packages are left on a resident’s porch or doorstep making it an easy target for thieves.
DPD asking you to be on the look out for the vehicles and to contact the Dickinson Police Department at 701-456-7759 with any information. Residents are further reminded that they may submit anonymous information through the DPD Facebook/webpage/or by using the FREE Badlands Crime Stoppers application which can be found in the App Store on your phones.
If a tip assists Dickinson Police Department with an arrest, the tipster may receive a monetary reward.
