HILLSBORO, Ore. — An Amazon package delivery driver admitted stealing a package off a porch in the Aloha area, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
Unfortunately for Perez Johnson, 29, of Portland, the package he stole near Southwest Tualatin Valley Highway and 170th Avenue sent out an alert at 6:40 p.m. Sunday to the sheriff’s office.
Deputies spotted him within minutes. Johnson told deputies he was an Amazon driver and took the bait package while delivering one himself. He said he had delivered a package to the home where he found the decoy earlier Sunday, and he told police he took the package because he gets a small stipend for returning “undeliverable” packages to Amazon.
