BUCKEYE, Ariz. — So-called "porch pirates" have been a well-documented, reoccurring nuisance in the Valley for years.
But have you ever seen a "porch ninja?"
Buckeye police is searching for such a scoundrel after a security camera captured a masked thief in dark clothing stealing packages off a doorstep.
Police said the thief was allegedly involved in committing multiple thefts on the afternoon of Sept. 29 in the neighborhood southeast of Yuma and Watson roads.
The suspect's vehicle was described as a gray Nissan Sentra with a hubcap missing from the front passenger side.
Anyone with information can contact the police at 623-349-6411.
Last year, Arizona ranked 15th on a list of the worst states for thefts involving "porch pirates."
