ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -

UPDATE: Rochester police arrest a woman wanted for stealing packages off people's porches.

RPD says they arrested 41-year-old Angela Clemens, of Rochester. She faces two counts of theft of mail.

Police also say Clemens had meth in her possession when she was taken into custody.

In early January, a video was recorded of a woman taking a package off the front step of Nick Dibble's home on Fox Valley Road. Police believe Clemens was the woman that plucked the UPS package from the door stoop and walked away with it.

Dibble says the package contained about five dozen diapers.
