Surveillance video footage from a home in Richmond has been making its rounds on social media as part of a resident’s plea to catch an apparent package thief.

The theft reportedly occurred at a home in the 4000 block of Mozart Drive about 1:15 p.m., and it happened less than 10 minutes after the packages were delivered by UPS, according to a friend of the victim, who sent us the videos included in this story.

According to the friend: “I have the video of the UPS driver leaving the packages, and I also have video of the package thief taking the packages. People are re-posting, but I think that if you post it, it would be much more helpful in finding the person.”

Here’s the UPS driver delivering the packages (he even appears to notice the surveillance camera):

And here is the person accused of swiping the packages:

The incident has been reported to police, the resident says. Anyone who can assist in this case should immediately contact the Richmond Police Department.

  1. How dare these people think its ok to steal from another individual. You could have just asked for some support. The nerve of some PEOPLE!

  2. Take a good look at the car. It should be easy to identify as the hubcaps are painted to match the car. This is quite uncommon.

  3. Ridiculous. Have you checked Safeway? You might be able to find her or her car there.
