The following information was provided by reports filed with the Huntington Police Department:

LARCENY: A 33-year-old man reported someone stole a UPS package that was delivered to his home in the 2900 block of Merrill Avenue on Jan. 11. He said the package contained a Kindle Fire worth $200.

The man said he reported the item missing to Amazon.com, and a customer service representative told him the item had been registered to a woman in Proctorville, Ohio, and the mailing address was for a business in Huntington.

Officers contacted the woman, who said her husband purchased the item from a friend, and she told police she would give the Kindle to officers at police headquarters.

The incident remains under investigation.
