A suspected package thief is behind bars after allegedly stealing a package. Justin Bankhead has lost several packages to thieves — two in the past week. After having several hundred dollars’ worth of items stolen, he offered a $500 reward for information leading to an arrest of a person who was caught on surveillance video taking a package. Justin’s own son took him up on the offer. Cody placed a box outside the family home. Inside the box was an activated GPS tracking device. Early Monday morning, surveillance video captured the moment when a man drove up to the house, raced up the stairs, and ran off with the cardboard box — unaware of what was inside. After realizing that someone had taken the box, Cody and his father pulled up the tracking information and called the police. Moments later, the suspect was arrested.
