On March 18, 2020, at about 1242 hours, Newark Police responded to a residence in the unit block of Plymouth Drive for a report of an attempted theft of a package. Arriving officers made contact with the resident, who advised that a package had just been delivered to his residence. The package was addressed to the resident, but the resident had not ordered the package.
A short time later, a male, who was not known to the resident, knocked on the door asking for the package. The male stated that the package must have been mistakenly delivered to the wrong address. The resident became suspicious and called Newark Police. The male then fled from the residence. Newark Police arrived on scene, located the male in the neighborhood and took him into custody without incident.
Further investigation determined that the package contained a cellular phone which had been ordered in the resident’s name. Unknown to the resident, the male suspect had placed a note on the resident’s door asking the delivery driver to leave the package on the front step. The male suspect is known to have been working with another male, who has not yet been identified, to facilitate this theft.
The male was identified as Kalil Aponte Lluberes, 19, of Philadelphia, PA. He was transported to Newark Police headquarters where he was charged with the following offenses:
Aponte Lluberes appeared before Justice of the Peace Court #2 by video and was released on $15,500 unsecured bail.
