Eriq Elevario, 30, was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly stealing packages from porches.

Menifee Police Department officers contacted Elevario around 2 p.m. near Park Plaza Drive and Civic Plaza Drive in reference to a call for service. Officers found him on a bench using a USPS package as a pillow, according to Menifee PD.

While speaking with Elevario, officers noticed a ring on his left hand which matched a ring that was stolen off a nearby porch in December. Elevario also matched the description of several package thefts in December, officials said.

Officers checked the package that Elevario was using as a pillow and discovered it was stolen from a nearby residence. Elevario was arrested and booked into the Southwest Detention Center. His charges include possession of unlawful paraphernalia. Elevario is scheduled to appear in court on January 7.
