KEANSBURG -

An Amazon delivery contractor has been accused of stealing packages from porches in Keansburg and Metuchen.

William Tindall III, 25, worked for Elizabeth-based Last Mile Delivery, which has a contract with Amazon.

Officials say that a homeowner provided surveillance video to police that allegedly showed a driver placing a package on her porch, then returning to steal other packages.

A Keansburg borough worker later told police about several opened packages left in a garbage can. Some allegedly belonged to the woman who had reported the earlier theft and others were from surrounding towns.

Detectives tracked them to the delivery company, which identified Tindall.

A spokesman for Amazon said in a statement, “This behavior is unacceptable and does not reflect the high standards we have for delivery service partners. This individual is no longer delivering Amazon packages.”

Tindall was charged with theft. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney to comment on his behalf.

The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
