Police said the van was locked but the driver had left the passenger window partially open.
She is getting information on the number of packages and their contents for police investigators.

A Detroit man resisted bouncers and police after he had $15 worth of drinks and fled  O’Toole’s bar without paying.
Police said the man, 28, is already on probation in Farmington and Royal Oak for public intoxication.
Bouncers chased the man as he jumped over the rope line and knocked over three large planters at the bar on Fifth Street about 12:30 a.m. May 7.
“He later stated he didn’t pay for his drinks because his ride was leaving and he didn’t want to miss it,” said Royal Oak police Lt. Albert Carter. “Unfortunately, he became uncooperative with officers.”
The suspect resisted getting in a patrol car, and would not stand up to be booked at the police station.
He is facing misdemeanor charges of defrauding an innkeeper, consuming alcohol in a public place, disorderly conduct, and obstructing police.

The crime happened April 22 while the man’s vehicle was left unlocked outside the Starbucks at 31901 Woodward Ave.
“He said the delay in reporting the crime was because he was trying to track it down himself,” said Royal Oak police Lt. Albert Carter. “He had been looking for surveillance video nearby or anyone who saw anything suspicious.”
Police gave him a copy of the police report so he could submit it to his car insurance carrier.
