A parcel thief who targeted homes in Dulwich will have to wear a curfew tag for three months.
Paul Julian, 31, from Bromley, pleaded guilty to burglary and theft at Croydon Magistrates’ Court this week.
He will now have to pay £380, carry out 20 days community service, and wear a tag until March.
Julian was arrested after Dulwich Wood residents captured him on CCTV stealing packages from their doorsteps
PC Tony Liparoti, from Southwark Police, said: “Suffice to say, there are people out there looking to steal parcels left outside.
“If you order things online, arrange for them to be delivered on a day you will be home, or have the delivery diverted to a drop box or trusted neighbour.”
