UPDATE: Davenport Police say a 20-year-old suspect in multiple thefts from front porches turned himself in on Wednesday.
Chandelor Amos, of Davenport, faces a felony charge of second-degree theft, court records and police say.
Shortly before 4:45 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25, officers with the Davenport Police Department took a report regarding theft from the 6000 block of Vine Street, Davenport. Officers allege the theft is connected to multiple other thefts between Nov. 15 and Friday, Nov. 25.
Police allege Amos took packages from front porches. “The Defendant had no right license
or privilege to the property or the items taken from the property. The Defendant did intend to permanently deprive the victims of their property,” an arrest affidavit says.
Amos was captured on video at multiple residences stealing the packages while he was wearing dark shoes, jeans, and a dark Adidas shirt. He was apprehended in those clothes, according to the affidavit.
The affidavit says Amos “did admit to taking packages belonging to others and leaving the property with said packages with the intent to deprive those victims of their property.”
The estimated total value of the property is between $1,500 and $10,000 in more than 10 thefts, according to the affidavit.
Amos was being held Wednesday on $5,000 in Scott County Jail.
