It’s certainly not the first time we’ve posted about thieves poaching Amazon Fresh deliveries from people’s porches here in Wallingford (and, we receive more reports than we publish), but this is the first break in the case we’ve heard.
I live on Meridian Ave between 38th and 39th. Today, upon returning home from lunch, I noticed someone leaving my drive way with an
AmazonFresh bag (there was no AmazonFresh truck parked in front of my house). The person appeared to be female and was wearing a red coat and a white hat. I quickly realized the bag had been taken from in front of my doorway. It was empty, so I didn’t think too much of it, and just shouted after her saying that she could keep the bag since it was empty. However, she had also gone through the empty Amazon Fresh frozen tote in front of my door, and I was concerned that this individual might be stealing things from outside other homes in the neighborhood. I decided to follow her and see what else she might try to do.
She entered the passenger side of a Nissan Maxima at corner of 37th and Burke across from the Wallingford Bible Fellowship. I have included two photos of the vehicle. You can see the passenger is wearing a red coat and a white hat. I opted not to confront her.
While walking home, I found the empty AmazonFresh bag she had taken.
I called the police and they are sending out an officer to take a report, but I thought your readers might want to know.
Oh yes, I’m sure they do! Nice work, Joshua! We’ve included the photos below, including a blow-up of the woman’s face as she leans back in her car and throws you the “what’s your problem, all I’m doing is stealing your groceries” stink-eye.
Oh, how I wish there weren’t an Obama sticker in her window.
(Wallyhood would like to note that as of this writing, the person pictured here is not an official suspect nor have they been convicted in any crime. The report here is the uncorroborated statement of a Wallingford citizen.)

I’d like to clarify that the person laying down in the driver’s seat is not the person who was on my property. The individual in the passenger seat (who you can’t really see), is the one who took the AmazonFresh bag. It is entirely possible that the driver had/has no idea what the passenger did.
