Arrest Made After String of Package Thefts in Tewksbury, Mass.

Police say they have arrested a woman who allegedly stole packages off of the porches of four different homes on North and Main streets in Tewksbury, Massachusetts.

Jacquelyn Veronica Suazo, 30, will be arraigned on three counts of larceny under $250 and one count of larceny over $250 Friday, according to police.

Suazo currently lives at a homeless shelter in Lawrence. 

Home surveillance video captured the suspect taking packages off of a porch in broad daylight on Monday.

Nellie Grzybinski lives across the street and couldn’t believe detectives were at home asking if she saw anyone stealing potential Christmas gifts.

"It's just terrible," she said.

Police say they recovered some of the empty boxes on another porch in the area. 

The items the Suazo allegedly got away with were some children books and, surprisingly, a home security system. 

Police were able to pinpoint the getaway car as a silver vehicle, with Suazo allegedly driving.

Officers are working on getting a search warrant for her shelter room.

In the meantime, Tewksbury police say there are few ways to keep yourself protected from package theft this holiday season, including sending packages to other locations or requiring a signature for the package delivery.

It's not clear if Suazo has an attorney.
