EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - The sheriff’s office is looking for a porch pirate pillaging packages near Black Forest.

Investigators say the suspect struck in the 5000 block of Old Stage Coach Road on Black Friday. The area is off Highway 83.

“The suspect vehicle drives up to the entrance of the driveway, exits vehicle, walks up to the victim’s porch and steals a package from it,” the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office said.

The crime happened between 2:30 and 2:50 in the afternoon. Both the suspect vehicle and the suspect himself were caught on video, as seen in the surveillance stills at the bottom of this article.
