The victim told officers that a man grabbed a delivered package from the porch, tucked it under his arm and fled the area in a white or gray two-door Acura Intrega coupe with a black painted hood.

Police say the car appears to have been repainted because the passenger side interior door was a maroon color.

The victim was unable to get a license plate number, but describes the thief as a Hispanic man who was wearing a black shirt with bandana sleeves and red pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Thornton Police Department Tip Line at 720-977-5069.
