If you're living somewhere in the Greater Not-Eastside Area and had a package stolen off your doorstep, you might want to check in with police.

LAPD just arrested a Silver Lake man accused of stealing 80 packages left on the doorsteps of people from Eagle Rock, Glassell Park and Silver Lake over the last five months, The Eastsider L.A. reports. Now police are looking for the owners of the packages.

If you want to claim your goods, you've got to bring in an invoice to the Northeast Station in Glassell Park by Wednesday, because everything was taken out of their packages. Call the Northeast Burglary Detectives at (323) 344-5762.
