Officers ID And Arrest Suspected Porch Pirates

An alert Anderson Police Officer has caught a couple of suspected porch pirates. On December 5th someone in Anderson showed police surveillance video of a shirtless man getting out of a black SUV and taking a package from their front porch that contained a child’s Christmas present. Police were able to discern a license plate number and on Wednesday the suspect vehicle was spotted in the Peter Pan Gulch Area off Olinda Road. The driver, 40-year-old Stephanie Walton, had an active warrant and a suspended drivers license, and was allegedly in possession of Meth. She reportedly admitted to being the driver in the package theft. At her home officers found 39-year-old Adam Michaels, who had five warrants and reportedly admitted to being the thief. Both were arrested and the stolen property was recovered.
