The WPD is seeking leads on a shoplifting case from Dec. 27.
WARWICK, RI — Warwick Police are seeking information in two theft cases, one from the Macy’s department store and a “porch pirate” theft from a home on Lincoln Avenue.

Video footage and the store’s loss prevention staff confirmed the thefts, according to the department.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact Det. Matthew Smith at [email protected] or call (401) 468-4239.
