Highland Park Police have captured a man who they say has stolen over $55,000 in packages right off of residents’ front porches.
Kyle Cassidy was trying to return a pair of shoes at a shop in Highland Park VIllage when the store employees became suspicious. They didn’t believe his story that his wife bought him the pair a day earlier, and notified the police. With further inspection of his Ford Fusion, police found his car packed full with boxes. Police told NBC DFW, “We’re not talking about a couple of packages, we’re talking about a sedan, a mid-size sedan, that was filled full of packages. Different addresses, different names, they were in the trunk, they were in the back seat, they were in the front seat and so when all the inventory was pulled out of the vehicle, we had probably, estimated, about $50,000 worth of merchandise just inside the car.”
Cassidy was arrested with connection to a theft of property between $30,000 and $150,000, a third-degree felony. Highland Park Police is working with Dallas and University Park Police, as well as UPS and Fed Ex to make sure the stolen packages are returned to their rightful owners.
