A slick package thief was nearly caught in the act Thursday after pretending to be a surveyor in Crown Heights. He uses peoples lack of interest in opening their doors to stash loose packages in bags he brought.
One target nearly caught him in the act, realizing his intentions but opening the door just a minute too late.
The man, wearing a blue sweater and camouflage cap, was carrying a clipboard and pen, along with a duffle bag to carry his loot.
