In just the past month, police received four reports of stolen packages near the Hamburg area.

A surveillance video from last Tuesday afternoon on Colorado Road shows a woman backing into the driveway of a home. She then took a package off of the home's porch, and made her way across the street to take a second package.

Neighbors did not want to go on camera; however, they did say the neighborhood is usually safe.

Lexington police say in addition to those two packages, she took another one in Andover. A package was stolen from a home on Liberty Road during the same time period.

The woman was also wearing a pink headband and a pink shirt.
