LONG ISLAND, N.Y. (PIX11) — A DoorDash delivery driver is facing several charges after stealing packages from two Long Island homes, police said Wednesday.
Juliana Saggaram, 33, was charged with two counts of petty larceny for allegedly stealing a package each in Manhasset and Sands Point, police said.
A 54-year-old woman noticed a package was stolen from outside her home on Sept. 3 around 4:30 p.m., according to police.
Saggaram, while completing orders for DoorDash, picked up an order from Chipotle and then drove around the area searching for packages to steal, police said. While holding the food as a cover, police said she walked up to the victim’s home, stole the package, and drove away.
Saggaram was also found responsible for a second theft in Sands Point on the same day, police said. DoorDash deactivated Saggaram’s Dasher account after the incident, according to sources.
Detectives asked anyone who feels they may have been a victim of a similar crime to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS or 911. All callers will remain anonymous.
