AKRON, OH (WOIO) –
Three teens are in custody tonight after a FedEx worker posted a video on Facebook catching them committing crimes in Akron.
A FedEx driver told Akron Police he saw the teens ride off with a package he had just delivered.
“Here’s a FedEx driver basically out doing his job delivering packages to people’s houses. He sees three kids on bicycles go up to the porch and leave with the package he had just delivered. His first reaction was to follow them but then his most important reaction was to take out his cell phone and actually videotape the kids as they were leaving, riding their bikes away,” said Lieutenant Rick Edwards, Public Information Officer for the Akron Police Department.
In addition to package thefts, police say there have been several bikes and ATVs stolen, and burglaries in the Firestone Park neighborhood.
Jim Cool says he’s one of the victims. He’s the man seen on camera with the teens. He says he had no idea what they were into.
“I’m filling up a tire on a stolen bicycle so they can get away with a stolen FedEx package, which is just mind-boggling to me,” he said.
He also says later that night, the teens came back, broke into his garage and stole bikes.
