Glendale, CA – The Glendale Police Department arrested three males involved in a theft of Amazon packages from a delivery truck in the City of Glendale.
On Sunday, February 17, 2019 at 12:33 pm, Glendale officers were dispatched to the 200 block of West Loraine Street regarding an Amazon delivery driver that saw two males enter her van and steal packages while she was delivering items to a residence. The two males then entered a black BMW without license plates and fled towards Valley View Road.
While the officers were responding to the call, the Glendale Police Department Communications Division received a separate 911 call from a witness that was following the suspect vehicle. The witness reported he saw males steal a package from a delivery truck and directed the officers to the suspect vehicle at the Shell gas station located at Kenneth Road and Grandview Road.
The Glendale officers quickly arrived on scene and detained the three suspects, identified as 18 year old Emajea Porter of Carson, 19 year old Anthony Henderson of Carson and Jordan Maclamore of Henderson Nevada.
The witnesses positively identified the suspects and they were taken into custody and booked for petty theft and conspiracy to commit a theft.
The case will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office for filing consideration.
