A string of parcel thefts in Nanaimo has resulted in police warning the public again and looking for a man spotted near one incident.

The most recent theft was reported to Nanaimo RCMP on Dec. 5 in the area of Dufferin Street, and have occurred over a three-week span.

Officers say a resident was expecting parcels but none were found, even after being told they had been dropped off by a local courier company.

On Dec. 5, the last day her parcel was expected to arrive, she spotted an older model black Mustang with an Alberta license plate and a male driver stopped outside her home as a courier company pulled up to her neighbour’s house.

She later told police the same car was seen near her home on the days her parcels were expected.

The man is only considered a person of interest in the investigation but police say they are looking to speak with him.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or Crimestoppers.

Police suggest homeowners request a signature upon drop off or arrange the time of delivery when someone is home to receive a parcel.
