Two men and a juvenile from Corona were arrested on suspicion of stealing packages from homes in Irvine, police reported Tuesday.
A U.S. Postal Service mail carrier called Irvine police about 3 p.m. Monday to report a possible package theft in progress outside a home, according to Farrah Emami of the Irvine Police Department.
“The reporting party provided a detailed physical description of the three male suspects and the red Ford Explorer in which they fled the neighborhood,” Emami said.
An Irvine police officer spotted the SUV and made a traffic stop, she said.
“The three occupants were positively identified as the suspects, and multiple stolen package and a stolen credit card were located in the car,” Emami said.
Arrested on suspicion of theft, conspiracy and contributing to the delinquency of a minor were Alejandro Juarez Morales and Vincente Juarez, both 25, Emami said.
The name and age of the juvenile arrestee were withheld because he’s a minor.
