VACAVILLE — The Vacaville Police Department found a man caught on surveillance stealing a package.

Thursday, just before 1 p.m., he was seen taking a package off of the porch of a home near 1300 Callen Street.

Hours later, a citizen spotted Wyatt Saole, 19, on Scoggins Court and identified him as the thief from the original post by Vacaville police.

Police detained Saole and were able to return the package back to the Callen Street resident after the 19-year-old led them to the area where he had discarded the box’s contents.

The department hopes his arrest will send “a message to all “Grinches” that you can’t take what’s not yours and never know when you’ll be captured on camera for all to see your dastardly deeds.”
