Picture - Images show sea of stolen packages and debris after thieves raid LA trains

Dozens of packages were stolen out of cargo containers in downtown Los Angeles, leaving the train track cluttered with shredded boxed, UPS packages and debris.

In a video taken from CBSLA freelancer John Schreiber, the train tracks are covered under a sea of trash, epi pens, COVID-19 tests and more. The scene was not a one-time event, thieves have been raiding cargo containers in the area for months.

While CBSLA cameras were on the scene, one person was spotted running off with a container used to hold small packages, and a Union Pacific railroad police officer was spotted pursuing two other people who were apparently going through packages.

A similar scene occurred in November, when NBC4's cameras caught thousands of boxes discarded along the tracks lined with homeless encampments northeast of downtown in the Lincoln Park area.
