In December, Allison was arrested on theft charges after police said he admitted to stealing packages from doorsteps in Lawrence. Detectives gave credit to tips from citizens in that case as well.

Allison was out of jail on bond awaiting his trial in the cases of package theft when he was arrested Friday.
