Porch pirate seen stealing package in Universal City
Woman surprisingly got her package back
UNIVERSAL CITY, Texas – Another porch pirate was seen stealing a package off a front porch, this time in Universal City.
The Grinch made his getaway on Dec. 6 in the Olympia Hills neighborhood.
The homeowner told KSAT this is the first time anyone has ever stolen a package from her.
“What might be different here, I did get the package back,” the homeowner said in an email.
She said a woman who works around her neighborhood noticed a box in the middle of the street and brought it back to her when she saw the address.
“It had been ripped open, but the item was safe and sound. I guess they didn’t want a child’s drone,” the homeowner said.
The thief can be seen getting into the passenger side of a red, two-door car after swiping the package.
Mail theft has been caught on camera numerous times around the San Antonio area this year.
A woman was seen on a Ring camera stealing packages in a San Antonio neighborhood on Nov. 8.
Another woman was caught on camera stealing a package on Nov. 5 on the East Side.
Stealing packages became a state felony offense in Texas in September after Gov. Greg Abbott signed legislation that increased the punishment for package piracy.
