2 men arrested for string of package thefts across South Bay

HERMOSA BEACH, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Two men were arrested by Hermosa Beach police for allegedly stealing unattended packages from several porches across the South Bay.

Raymond Tammany, 35, and Anthony Ward, 22, were arrested for possession of stolen property and grand theft auto on Dec. 24 after they were spotted unloading several opened UPS and FedEx boxes from a truck near Prospect Avenue and Artesia Boulevard.

After approaching the two suspects, an officer discovered several of the packages had the address labels ripped off.

During a search warrant of the residence, detectives seized at least 30 packages containing various items, including perfumes, skin products, electronics, jewelry and power tools. Authorities also learned the suspects were driving a stolen vehicle.

Tammany's girlfriend is now under investigation in connection with the thefts. Police say all three were arrested for similar crimes in October.

Several items of stolen property are still waiting to be claimed. If you believe your package may have been stolen, contact Hermosa Beach police Det. Cruz at (310) 318-0332.
