Package thief caught on video arrested

On Wednesday, February 10 police arrested a Pomona woman two days after she was caught on surveillance footage stealing packages from the front porch of a house. The theft occurred on the 1100 block of Briarcroft Road at approximately 12:45 p.m. on Monday. The woman, later identified as 38-year-old Tracie Chamberlin-Gertz, was seen in the video snatching three Amazon packages and leaving. The video was posted to Facebook, where it was viewed over 200,000 times.

The resident of the house later saw Ms. Chamberlin-Gertz two days later in the area of Towne Avenue and Foothill Boulevard and called police, according to Lt. Aaron Fate. She was positively identified, and the contents from the packages were found in her vehicle. Ms. Chamberlin-Gertz was transported to CPD jail, where she was booked for the theft. Her court appearance is scheduled for April 11.
