Blackwell was taken into custody when he arrived Tuesday morning to check in with his parole officer. He has been charged with suspicion of attempted burglary, conspiracy and a parole violation, police said.
The minor suspect remained at large Friday, according to police.
Epps wrote on Facebook that the packages the burglars took contained baby items that he and his wife had ordered for their newborn daughter.
“MPD state(s) that the main reason they are able to pursue these individuals is due to our Ring doorbell getting solid footage of them stealing our packages, and the audio can be even made out to hearing them say, ‘Wanna break in?’" Epps wrote.
He said that both his wife and daughter were doing well. He also thanked the police, as well as the doorbell camera and security companies, for their work.
“An enormous thank you and debt of gratitude to Ring, Protection1 and Modesto PD for their unwavering diligence and persistence in helping keep Modesto safe,” Epps wrote.
