GARFIELD, N.J. – Garfield police officers weren’t going to let a package thief get away, so they checked the surrounding neighborhood -- and found their suspect.

John Fermin, 21, of Paterson was wearing the jeans and red sweater described by the Garwood Court victim when Officer Sebastian Tyburski spotted him running near the Garfield High School parking lot just after 7 p.m. Wednesday, Capt. Darren Sucorowski said.

Fermin was carrying Xanax without a prescription, Sucorowski said. They also recovered the package, worth at $67.

Police charged him with theft and criminal trespass and released him on a court summons, the captain said.
