Odds are a Walnut Creek package thief wasn’t shopping for diapers and baby formula when he lifted a parcel off a doorstep Tuesday night, but that’s what he got.
Investigators say it’s likely the theft wasn’t the man’s only criminal foray, but he’ll be remembered as “Diapers and Formula Guy” thanks to a video surveillance system that captured him at work on Trotter Court in Walnut Creek.
Lt. Steve Gorski said the man got away with a package containing about $107 worth of diapers and baby formula and was last seen leaving the area in an older gray GMC truck. Anyone with information about the suspect or his whereabouts is asked to call Walnut Creek police at (925) 943-5844.
Not exactly The Great Train Robbery, but noteworthy nonetheless.
