Pasco County Sheriff's Corporal Andrew Denbo says neighbors in the Wilderness Lakes Preserve community in Land O Lakes noticed they weren't receiving their packages during the holidays.
Come to find out, says Denbo. The 15-year-old son of the guy hired to deliver UPS packages to that neighborhood was intercepting the packages, then replacing the ordered items with something that weighed the same.
He says the teen would replace an iPad, for instance, with a book.
Denbo says most of the stolen items have been recovered, like electronics, even gift cards.
The teen is facing a felony charge of scheme to defraud more than $300.
