CAPTURED: Normandy Park Police arrest accused package thief who tried to play sick to avoid jail

CAPTURED -- Normandy Park Police say a Washington's Most Wanted viewer tip to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound identified an accused package thief as 32-year-old Christina A. Kintop. Officers located her car which turned out to be a Geo Prism and found her hiding in the back of her motorhome. .


"She indicated she was very sick and would be unable to go to the jail but the thermometer indicated her temperature was 98.6 so the jail was more than happy to take her," said Normandy Park Police Chief Dan Yourkoski.


Kintop was booked into the SCORE Jail on Theft 3rd degree along with a felony warrant for escaping from community custody and a misdemeanor theft warrant.


She is currently on Department of Corrections supervision for Possession of Controlled Substance, and 2 counts of Taking a Motor Vehicle Without Permission.


She is currently being held on a no bail DOC warrant.


"Without the help of Washington's Most Wanted and the viewers, there is no way we would have been able to identify her and locate her," said Normandy Park Police Chief Dan Yourkoski


Kintop is WMW Capture #1149 thanks to tips from our viewers. 

Barking dogs did not stop a Porch Pirate from snatching a package from the front of a home in the late morning of March 27th.

It's a seriously bold move by the suspect with everyone staying at home these days. "The person went right up to the door, shortly after it had just been delivered by the delivery service. Probably the package's on the porch less than 10 minutes. Person grabbed it, headed straight back to their car,” said Normandy Park Police Chief Dan Yourkoski. “You know, with everybody being at home, we're actually seeing, for the most part, a decrease in crime, because everybody's at home, a decrease in burglaries and package theft."

But, this woman is sure bucking the trend.

Normandy Park Police hope you can tell detectives her name. They say she's white, in her early 20's, with dark hair.

They’d also like help tracking down the car she was driving. "Late 90's sedan, possibly a Toyota Corolla, light blue in color. It's got kind of some distinct black rims on the tires and the front bumper, it looks like it's falling off and is attached with maybe a piece of rope,” said Chief Yourkoski.

The suspect's likely a prolific package thief and isn't going to stop until you can help Normandy Park Police identify her.

If you know her name, anything about her, or her car, use the P3 Tips App on your smart phone to submit the information to Crime Stoppers, or call the hot line at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
