Man Caught Stealing Packages Instead Of Cleaning Neighborhood

Chicago (CBS) -- When the city contractor hired men in bright vests to clean up the Bridgeport area, someone cleaned off nearby porches instead.

Rather than collecting trash, a bag wound up full of Amazon boxes from the area.

CBS 2 was told one of the workers took dozens of them before getting arrested near 32nd and Princeton. He has been charged with theft.
