SPOKANE, Wash - With a search warrant on Christmas Eve, Spokane Police found a man who admitted stealing Christmas gifts from Spokane porches in December.

Spokane Police were trying to track down package thieves first spotted in the 5000 block of North Lidgerwood on December 6th.

In that case, a woman was seen getting out of a Ford Ranger, then stealing a package off the porch of a home.

She got back into that truck, which was later tracked to someone living in the 2000 block of West Wellesley.

Two days later, Spokane Police received more surveillance pictures of people stealing packages in Spokane.

On Christmas Eve, Spokane Police received yet another video of the same truck.

Spokane Police are working to return the stolen gifts to their rightful owners. »
