Police released this image of the man they say stole a package off the porch of a South Pasadena residence.

South Pasadena police officers are seeking a man who they said was caught on camera as he stole a large package from the front porch of a South Pasadena home last Wednesday.

South Pasadena police detective Richard Lee said the theft took place past 12 noon in the 1400 block of Milan Avenue. Lee said home surveillance video showed a man wearing a utility vest arriving at the home in a silver, four-door sedan and parking in the victim’s driveway.

The suspect then walked up to the front porch and dragged away the package which the owner said contained a trampoline. Lee said the man then loaded the package into his car and drove off.

South Pasadena police described the man as between 30 and 35 years old, with brown hair and a mustache. He wore a utility vest with yellow stripes, a black shirt, blue jeans and black-and-white sneakers.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the South Pasadena Police Department at (626) 403-7280.
