Welfare check in San Rafael leads to arrest of alleged package thief

Bay Area

A welfare check at home in San Rafael led to the arrest of an alleged package thief on Thursday. 

The Marin County Sheriff’s Office arrested 40-year-old Alexander Sada after they found numerous Amazon boxes around the residence. 

Packages were found inside and outside of the home with the routing labels removed. 

Deputies initially responded to a welfare check after a care manager grew concerned about their client’s living conditions. 

It turned out, the elderly person living inside the home was fine. 

Sada was a tenant renting a room in the home where he was arrested. 

Deputies say the man would drive to San Francisco to steal packages and then keep them in his quiet neighborhood.
