Centerton PD Using Packages to Catch Thieves


CENTERTON, Ark. (KNWA) — For people concerned about package theft, the Centerton Police Department has created a new system to catch thieves. 

Centerton police partnered up with “Ring” Doorbells in an attempt to prevent packages from being stolen from your doorstep.

The criminal investigations division will be placing “bait” packages at homes with video cameras.

Packages will exceed $1,000, making the crime a felony and legal for police to prosecute the thieves to the full extent of the law.
