CITY OF SHASTA LAKE, Calif. – Shasta County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Sacramento woman Tuesday for stealing packages from the front porch of a home in the City of Shasta Lake.

Deputies said it happened on Smith Avenue and the value of the packages was approximately $180. The victim, a local firefighter, provided video surveillance of the suspect and the vehicle she was driving to deputies.

The sheriff’s office said it later received tips from citizens which eventually led to the suspect vehicle at a Redding area hotel. Deputies contacted the suspect, 36-year-old Tanya Moore, who they said later admitted she was responsible for the theft.

Moore was still in possession of the stolen packages, which were later returned to the owner. The case will be forwarded to the Shasta District Attorney’s Office for prosecution, according to the sheriff’s office.

The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release, it would like to remind citizens to remain vigilant in protecting themselves from being victimized as we approach the holiday season.

"Criminals often utilize the holiday season as an opportunity to exploit the spirit of giving by stealing from members of our community," said the sheriff's office. "Criminals will often drive through residential areas looking for packages left on porches by local delivery businesses. To aid in avoiding being a victim of package theft, the Sheriff’s Office suggests citizens make alternative delivery arrangements with the delivery carriers if they will not be home during the anticipated time of delivery. Citizens are encouraged to be vigilant and report all suspicious vehicles, persons and/or activities to their local law enforcement."
