This morning, Wednesday, December 19 at 11:13 a.m, Orange Police received a call from an alert citizen who observed someone take a previously-delivered package from her neighbor’s front porch on Saybrook Road.

She was able to give officers a description of a suspect and the vehicle he was driving.

Using this information, police located the blue 2008 Chevy Cobalt in the area and the suspect attempted to elude police by first driving away and ignoring officers’ attempts to get him to stop, then by abandoning his vehicle in a parking lot and attempting to flee on foot.

Coordinated efforts by the patrol and Investigative Service Divisions allowed officers to close in on the suspect’s position, and he gave himself up shortly thereafter.

The arrestee, identified as Corey Roberts, 28, of Monroe, was taken into custody and charged with driving a motor vehicle without Insurance, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, engaging police in pursuit, driving an unregistered motor vehicle, misuse of a marker plate, third-degree criminal trespass, and four counts of sixth-degree larceny.

Officers seized his vehicle from the parking lot of a nearby business. Inside the vehicle, officers found more packages and suspected stolen items.

If you did not receive a package that your carrier or seller is claiming was delivered (since Dec. 17), contact police directly at 203-891-2130.

At this time, it appears that Roberts may have targeted the Dogwood Road and surrounding residential areas.
