URBANA, Ill. (WCIA) — Champaign County Crime Stoppers is asking the public for help in identifying a porch pirate who stole a package from an Urbana home last month.
Officials said the theft happened the night of Jan. 10. in the 1500 block of South Smith Road.

Nearly a month later, the stolen package and its contents have yet to be recovered.
