Darien police are looking for the male in this picture. Police say he was caught on camera stealing a package from the porch of a home on Hollow Tree Ridge Road, “closer to the Post Road,” at about 10 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 1.

Stealing packages from porches has been called “porch pirating,” police noted in a Facebook post about the incident (and if you google “porch pirate,” you’ll get 12.8 million hits, as opposed to, say, “box bandit,” which gets you less than 9,000 hits).
