BUTTE - Butte police say they have a suspect in a string of package thefts from front porches that occurred last month.

Investigators say they are getting a warrant for a woman suspected of stealing packages from porches of at least three homes in Butte on Oct. 28.

Police say they recognized the suspect from security video taken by one of the victims.

“The porch camera video was pretty good video, actually. It showed pretty good likeness, pretty good photo of the face was pretty good, so we were able to identify her from previous photos of her,” said Butte Undersheriff George Skuletich.

Police expect to make an arrest soon, but haven't released the suspect's name.
