MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A woman has been arrested after allegedly stealing packages from the front porch of a home on Sumter Drive, according to a press release from the Myrtle Beach Police Department.

Police responded to a home on the 5800 block of Sumter Drive Monday after a citizen reported suspicious activity. The citizen noticed that several packages were taken from her porch and saw a woman riding a bicycle with the packages, the report states. After a brief foot chase, 33-year-old Stephanie Renee Stewart was arrested. According to police, over 100 pieces of mail and stolen property were recovered.

“What this shows everyone is what we hear and say constantly, if you see something and say something. A lot of times it may be a small piece of information you have that can result in something much bigger and that’s what we have here," said Capt. Joey Crosby.

Stewart has been charged with petit larceny, simple possession of marijuana and resisting arrest. She is currently being held at the Myrtle Beach Jail.

“I think that sad part is if people will just ask for help so many people want to help. I think she would have gotten everything she needed if she could have just asked somebody for help as opposed to essentially ruining somebody else Christmas," said Jennifer Hampton.
