Porch pirate caught on camera, busted for theft in Fostoria




UPDATE: Second suspect has been charged in case

FOSTORIA, Ohio — A Risingsun man was arrested and another suspect will be charged in a case of holiday porch piracy in Fostoria, police say.

Cops in Fostoria responded to a report of suspects taking packages off a porch on South Union St. shortly before 4 p.m. Monday, a release from Fostoria PD states.

19-year-old John Jacquot, of Risingsun, was charged with theft after he and another suspect were identified through camera footage and witness accounts.

The other suspect will be charged, the release states.

UPDATE: Second suspect has been charged in case

“This is so pathetic, especially during the Christmas season,” Chief Keith Loreno of the Fostoria Police Department said.

Loreno reminded residents to be vigilant if you have packages delivered over the holidays.

Having someone at home when the package arrives or having them delivered to a neighbor you trust is a good idea. You can also request that your mail carrier hides the package at your home or has it delivered to your workplace, if possible.
