SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The Spokane County Sheriff's office says two people were arrested on Monday after stealing packages from doorsteps to repackage as gifts for Christmas.
The Spokesman Review reports ( http://bit.ly/1igoiQY) that a witness saw a woman take a package from a doorstep, then sprint to a waiting car. Police later arrested a 21-year-old man and 34-year-old woman. Police say the woman told them she is unemployed and needed gifts for Christmas. Both suspects are being held on a theft charge in the original incident. Investigators plan to pursue further charges as they sort through the packages discovered at the couple's home.
