Police arrested a couple from Watertown after they allegedly stole a package off the porch of a home.
A resident called police to report two people stealing a package from a home on Spring Street near Palfrey Street on Jan. 15 at 1:11 p.m., said Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn.
The couple was last seen on Palfrey Street heading toward Mt. Auburn Street, Lawn said, and officers located them on Irving Street.
"The male was carrying a package concealed under his sweatshirt," Lawn said. "Officers stopped the two individuals abd identified the package to be the one stolen from the spring street residence."
Brittany Hughes, 18, of 55 Webster St. in Watertown, and Joshua Del-Bosque, 19, of 44 Church St. in Watertown, both face charges of larceny from a building and receiving stolen property, Lawn said.
