Two separate California homeowners caught the same delivery person on camera pretending to deliver a package but then stealing a package from their doorsteps.
CBS Los Angeles produce this news story we have included below that shares the story. The first individual, Jane who lives in Gardena, California, received a push notification on her smart phone alerting her that someone was spotted on her Amcrest security camera. The driver walked to the door with a package in hand, perhaps to look more official like he had something to deliver, but left the door with Jane’s package.
The same thing happened to to a Joe in Torrence, California. On Joe’s porch, the delivery person encountered a USPS worker, but that didn’t stop him from taking a package off Joe’s doorstep once the USPS worker left. The entire exchange was caught with a Ring video doorbell. Joe saw a note from Jane on Nextdoor.com and discovered that it appeared to be the same person who stole both packages.
Joe contacted Amazon to report the theft.
