When Sarasota police made a traffic stop of a suspected porch pirate, officers also found drug paraphernalia and a controlled substance in her possession.

On Tuesday, Angelique Erica Poquette, 45, of Sarasota, was arrested for a grand theft that occurred on Thursday, Dec. 7. Surveillance video of the incident shows a woman in a white four-door Infiniti removing packages from the front porch of a home on Cosmopolitan Court about an hour after the items were delivered. The value of the items was placed at approximately $1,830.

A surveillance camera captured two characters on the license plate of the getaway car, and detectives were able to identify the vehicle and complete the tag.

Poquette was pulled over on a felony warrant by the Sarasota Police Department on Dec. 8. At the time of the arrest, she was wearing a pair of shoes that were reported stolen from Cosmopolitan Court the day before.

The items stolen were four pairs of Converse sneakers valued at $230 and 12 Lumen exterior LED lights valued at $1,600.

Poquette remains in custody at Sarasota County Jail. Her bond is set at $4,000.
