SAN ANTONIO – UPDATE: The homeowner told KSAT that Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies apprehended the man seen stealing a package off the porch of her home.
ORIGINAL: A homeowner in the Stone Creek community on San Antonio’s far West side caught a porch pirate stealing her packages on her home’s security cameras Monday.
The homeowner shared the videos with KSAT and said the man stole the package around 12:30 p.m., just minutes after it was dropped off by an Amazon truck.
A report was filed with a Bexar County Sheriff deputy and the homeowner told KSAT that police would issue a warrant for the thief’s arrest once he is identified.
“As you can see in the videos, he knocks lightly and goes back to his car, puts the car in reverse to move out of the way of the camera a little, and then walks back up and takes the package,” the homeowner said.
Stealing 10 packages or less became a state felony offense in Texas in September after Gov. Greg Abbott signed legislation that increased the punishment for package piracy.
