(OAK LAWN) Two northwest Indiana residents hired to deliver phone books in southwest suburban Oak Lawn are accused of stealing packages off a porch.
A resident called 911 on Monday after seeing two people remove packages from a porch in the 10000 block of South Kildare, and load them into a vehicle, according to an Oak Lawn police statement.
Officers stopped a vehicle matching its description and found the two packages inside, both bearing the name and address of the victim, police said.
