DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Police have arrested a woman suspected of stealing packages from several homes in northwest Dallas in December.

In at least one of those cases, police say the woman waited in the car while sending 10-year-old boy out to steal the package from a home's front porch. 

Surveillance video shows a woman stealing a package outside a home on Gooding Drive on December 19th.

Police say that same woman was spotted dropping off a child outside a home on Clover Lane, then waiting in her vehicle while that child stole a package. Police said at the time they believed the woman was using children to steal packages.

After police released surveillance video from one of the thefts, investigators got a tip regarding the woman's identity.

They have arrested 30-year-old Ana Isabel Lopez on four counts of theft. The child involved has been placed in the custody of his father.
