The Burbank Police announced two teenagers were arrested Thursday on suspicion of trailing UPS delivery trucks and stealing packages from the front porches of homes in Burbank.
Police were called to Kenneth and Delaware roads at around 2:45 p.m. after a caller saw a Volkswagen Jetta following a UPS truck. The authorities found the two suspects – Ararat Gevondyan, 19, and a 16-year-old from Tujunga, who was not identified as he is a minor – on Sixth Street Cambridge Drive.
Cardboard boxes with shipping labels were located in the car and spread out around nearby streets, police said.
Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn stated the teenagers were allegedly stealing the UPS packages after they were delivered.
The police are asking residents to be aware of packages being mailed home and to plan ahead.
According to Burbank Officer Joshua Kendrick, A step in preventing mail theft is to have your neighbors, ones that you trust, gather packages that are delivered while you are away.
Gevondyan is being held in lieu of $20,000 bail and is expected in court next month. The minor was released pending a court that had not been scheduled yet.
