Hi Everyone,

Wanted to share some footage recorded this afternoon of a man stealing a package from my mailbox -- good news is that the package is actually just an empty box (something I had to return to a vendor), bad news is the man that did this now has a video of him stealing an empty box all over the internet.


As always, please share and report any suspicious behavior to the police.

Update! - Sept 11 / 2014

(Thanks Daniela for posting on FB group "I am a Leslievillan!" -- Edgar took a pic of the same individual walking in the Greenwood / Queen St. E area today) --- Please contact 55 Division if you spot this individual [his bag looks full from another busy day]

so great you have footage! very smart. 

We live a few houses away from you & we have had more than a few missing packages over the last couple years.

Someone came by and dropped off the box that was taken from us -- I guess she found it in the area .... the mail bandit probably didn't have use for it.  Lots of kind people living in the area, just a few rotten apples we have to contend with.

Hello Joe,

My name is Julie.  My husband and are sort of new to Leslieville.  We moved here from Mid-Town last year.  I wanted to share with you some information about this man.

I saw this posting by happenstance while researching daycare in the neighborhood.  When I saw this posting, and the picture of the man.  I immediately recognized him from a few sightings around our neighbourhood.  

This man first caught my attention this summer when I was on my way out of Loblaws at Leslie and Eastern.  I was walking out of the Loblaws doors when I witnessed him help himself to many items from the food donation bin in the vestibule, filling up his whole bag.    I walked behind him not on purpose, but he happened to be walking east bound the same direction I had to walk towards my house.  I walked quite a while just 5' behind him and had a really good look at him while he consumed some of the items he had just taken, all the while littering alone the sidewalk as he opened the packages, caps and wrappings.
I remember feeling furious about his arrogant and entitled way he carried himself at the moment, but I refrained from passing judgement thinking perhaps he was down and out and needed the nourishment, it was a donation bin after all.  
But now having read this post, I would really like this man to be embarrassed and reprimanded for his actions, which are disgusting.   He certainly does not deserve any kindness or benefit of doubt.  He is an opportunistic scumbag that probably needs to be public-ally shamed.
Please let me know how I can help you and the Police reprimand this man for theft.
Regards,
Julie

Thanks Julie, I just sent you a message -- if you could send me your email address via private message, I'll forward this onto the officer investigating this (and other mail theft) cases.  It looks like he lives in the neighborhood, so hopefully all of these sightings can help pinpoint where he is most likely to be.

I also have had several packages stolen from my mailbox/porch!!! I will definitely keep my eye out for this guy and snap some photos/call police if I see anything suspicious!! I feel like I've seen him around a lot in the 'hood...

Nice work! Do you have a police file?  We had the same thing happen with a different person.  We have taped up flyers with the photos and police report attached throughout the neighbourhood.  That seems to scare them.

Leslieville Local Business Marketing - 10 ways to use TheLeslieviller.com

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
