Suspected porch package thief caught on video
If anyone needs a reminder about thieves who target packages on front porches, look no further than Yale Street last Friday.

One homeowner, who requested anonymity, revealed his house was hit by a suspect who was apparently seen following a delivery truck. 

The outlaw was caught on video due to the homeowner's Ring security camera. Ring is the service that provides security cameras and other devices, some tied to the doorbell, that allow residents to monitor who approaches their front door.

The homeowner released the video to in an effort to warn other residents. See it below:

"He cased our house (with two cars in the driveway and tons of cars on the street) in broad daylight at 10:13 a.m. on Friday, walking to our front steps with a bike, holding a jacket and a Kings bag hanging on the handle bars," the homeowner said via email. "He then came back at 10:15 a.m. without the bike and just the jacket, put the jacket over our package, picked up the jacket w/package and walked off with it across the parking lot." 

He said he filed a police report on Monday and wants to make sure residents are aware of this approach by thieves, which police have warned about in the past.
