THEFT: A 65-year-old Mercer Island woman says she was expecting several packages from UPS at her home in the 9200 block of S.E. 46th Street, which included jeans, Italian cookies and a Porcelain cup and dish. She assumed that the items hadn’t yet been delivered, but after calling UPS realized that sometime between Nov. 11 and 12, UPS had supposedly made the delivery. UPS is investigating and said they had a new driver that day. It’s possible the packages may have been incorrectly delivered to another location.
