Caught On Camera: Crook Steals Package

By  | 

11 News has the surveillance video of a crook stealing a package right from a local woman's front porch.

The crime happened at a home on Greenwood Circle on Tuesday afternoon. The home is near Circle and Airport in Colorado Springs.

Through the lens of the home surveillance camera, you can see Ashley Ryan's package sitting on her front porch. Then on the right side of the screen you see the suspect walking up her driveway. They grab the package and walk away.

"It’s irritating because it makes me feel like someone is watching my house 24/7,” said Ryan.

In the box was about $400 dollars worth of chocolate. Ryan was about to start up her own business selling the chocolate. When she came home from work she noticed the package still had not arrived. So she tracked it online through Fed-Ex. She soon learned it had been delivered to her door at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

“It’s very aggravating. People need to stop stealing from everybody. Go work for your money like everybody else."

In her surveillance video you see the suspect's car drive off. It’s a red Pontiac Sunfire.

Ryan told 11 News the officer who took her report says another family in the same neighborhood also said that their package was stolen.

Colorado Springs police recommend having your package delivered to where you work. That way your secretary or someone at the front desk can get it for you.
