Video: Bothell package thief falls and has to be carried

Deputies think they know who she is. And she obviously now has a very badly injured left leg.

Investigators believe they know the identity of a package thief who apparently fell and hurt herself mid-theft on Friday in Bothell.

A surveillance video of the woman taking packages from a porch and then falling went viral over the weekend.

The incident occurred just after 11 a.m. Friday at a home not far from Martha Lake.

The video, from a surveillance camera at the home, shows the woman getting out of the car and taking three packages. On her way back to the car she fell, seriously injuring her left leg.

The car’s driver carried her to the vehicle because she apparently was too injured to walk.

Courtney O’Keefe, a spokeswoman for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, on Monday announced that the woman had been identified but remained at large.

Her name and age were not made public. The man hasn’t been identified, O’Keefe said.
