Porch Theft

Security-system footage posted to Facebook shows the suspect who allegedly took packages from a porch on Stagecoach Road.

At approximately 1 p.m. on Monday afternoon, police received a call from a female who stated that she had recently received security-system footage on her cellphone that showed a person taking two packages from the front porch of her home, located on the 200 block of Stagecoach Road.

The female claimed that the packages contained approximately $1,000 worth of beauty products.

After the female shared images from the security-system footage both with police and on Facebook, officers were able to identify the suspect as Kandace Gail Caruthers, 37, of Butte.

Caruthers was subsequently located and arrested on four misdemeanor charges of criminal contempt related to her various outstanding warrants, three of which were from Butte City Court totaling $3,000 and one of which was from the Montana Highway Patrol.

Police are also seeking a warrant for Caruthers’ arrest for the theft of the two boxes. However, no warrant had been granted as of Wednesday morning.
