Has your Amazon shipment gone missing? It might be at the Northeast police station

Police this week arrested a Silver Lake man who  allegedly spent the last five months stealing  packages that were delivered and left in front of residences across Eagle Rock, Glassell Park and Silver Lake. Now, burglary detectives at the Northeast Division are trying to find the owners of some 80 pieces of stolen merchandise that were found inside the man’s home.

The stolen goods are mostly a random assortment of items but the stash is heavy on women’s apparel, shoes and a small number of electronics that were purchased or delivered through Amazon, ebay, FedEx, UPS and other services, said Officer Gabriel Nily. But if anyone wants to try and claim these items, they will need to provide an invoice since the stolen goods now at the Northeast station were removed from their packages, Nily said.

The items will remain at the station in Glassell Park until next Wednesday before being booked into the LAPD Property Division in downtown Los Angeles. Persons should call Northeast Burglary Detectives at (323) 344-5762 for more information.


  1. No name of the person responsible for the thefts, minor?

  2. Yes he is a minor if it is the same guy who was stealing UPS on our street.

  3. Yes, i lost three packages. Where should i pick them up? Or should i just order thems from amazon again and they will send me new items? does anyone have the number to amazon? or maybe their internet addresses?

  4. Two Amazon Packages Found Open on Doorstep

    This week I received two Amazon packages on two different days. Both packages were open on my doorstep. Nothing was stolen from inside the boxes, but it was obvious that nothing was valuable inside, mostly small household maintenance items (max value of any item was $10-$15 each). First i thought it was a fluke, but two packages in 3 days makes it seem like someone is opening packages. Has anyone else had this problem? I live on West Silver Lake Drive near the north side of the reservoir.
