Thieves caught on camera swiping holiday packages


FORECAST COMING UP IN A FEW MINUTES. Steve: A NORTHWEST SIDE FAMILY GOT AN EARLY VISIT FROM HOLIDAY PACKAGE THIEVES. A SPECIAL DELIVERY FOR THANKSGIVING SWIPED OFF THEIR FRONT PORCH. BUT THESE THIEVES DIDN’T REALIZE THEIR CRIME WAS CAUGHT ON CAMERA. TIM GERBER HAS THE VIDEO. THAT’S THE GENTLEMEN. THERE GOES OUR PACKAGES. Reporter: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THOSE GUYS? I DON’T LIKE THEM. Reporter: HOLLY IS NOT IN A GIVING MOOD AFTER WATCHING THIS MAN STEAL PACKAGES FROM HER FRONT PORCH. I DON’T KNOW IF THEY KNOW THEY ARE DELIVERING AND START FOLLOWING OR IF THEY HAVE A PLAN, BUT I DON’T THINK THIS IS THEIR FIRST TIME. Reporter: SHE IS THANKFUL HER HUSBAND INSTALLED SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS. THEY PARKED BY OUR HOUSE. THEN THEY GET OUT AND WALK AROUND. Reporter: TWO MEN SLOWLY WALK BY THE HOME BEFORE ONE MOVES IN FOR THE BOXES. SECONDS LATER HE GETS INSIDE A WAITING SUV AND THEY’RE GONE. THE BOXES WERE FULL OF NEW DISHES SHE HAD HOPED WOULD LIFT HER HOLIDAY SPIRITS. I ACTUALLY HAD ORDERED SOME NEW COLORFUL DISHES BECAUSE OUR LAST HOLIDAY SEASON WAS A DIFFICULT ONE FOR US BECAUSE OF SOME FAMILY LOSSES AND I WANTED TO MAKE THIS SEASON A LITTLE BIT BRIGHTER. Reporter: SHE SAYS SHE IS A FREQUENT ONLINE SHOPPER AND OFTEN HAS PACKAGES DELIVERED TO HER FRONT PORCH BUT AFTER WATCHING THEM WALK AWAY WITH THEM, SHE PLANS TO HAVE THEM DELIVERED SOMEWHERE ELSE IN THE FUTURE. I WILL HAVE THEM DELIVERED TO MY WORK ADDRESS. IF I DIDN’T HAVE SOMEPLACE TO SHIP THEM, LIKE WORK, I’M NOT SURE I WOULD CONTINUE TO HAVE THEM SHIPPED HERE.
