There’s a new problem in Austin, Texas and it’s called porch pirates.

A group of people has been caught on doorbell cameras stealing packages from people’s porches. And it’s not going to slow down, especially since the holidays are coming up.

“We need to stop this now, especially before the holidays get started,” Gabriela, one of the residents affected, said. “They’re hitting in the middle of the day, the middle of the night. Same car. Same people.”

Unfortunately, Gabriela isn’t the only porch pirate victim.

And these porch pirates keep coming back again and again to steal the packages left on the porch.

Gabriela and her husband decided to retaliate by putting dirty diapers in the box. You’d think they’d stop, right?

No, they didn’t.

In fact, they even came back to smear the dirty diapers on their door but that wasn’t the end of it.

“Thirty minutes later, they came back with a giant bag of cow manure. They spread that all over our front porch and on our cars in the driveway,” Gabriela reported. “That was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I called police, filed a report, and now there’s a detective on the case.”

Wow, they even had the audacity to get revenge on the people they were stealing from.

It’s always the same people stealing the packages and they always leave in a black Chevy Suburban with no plates. They’re always wearing dark hoodies, and dark pants and their face masks cover their faces.

And they’ve gotten very arrogant about getting away with the theft.

One of Gabriela’s neighbors, Britany Walker, confronted the robbers and tried to reason with them.

“I tried to pull on their emotions or something,” Britany Walker said. “I just ran out and said, ‘I have a baby,’ and they looked at me and just laughed. It was a really upsetting moment.”

They really believe they’ll never get caught.

While it’s been a challenge to catch the thieves, the police are actively hunting them and ready to give them justice.

They also urge delivery companies to contribute to the prevention of these thefts.

This is not an easy battle and it will help the need of as many people and as many companies as it can get.

In the meantime, the police urge residents with security cameras to register at a voluntary database program that will show investigators the homes they can approach to help with their search and investigation. The police and investigators will know how to reach them and ask them to watch the footage in case there are crimes that happened in the area.

They’ve also encouraged the residents to have their packages delivered to the police station. The thieves will probably be smart enough not to steal packages from the police department, right?

Many of the residents have opted for this police service, especially now that the holidays are coming up.

Hopefully, these thieves are caught soon. They cannot be allowed to keep stealing and breaking the law. And with residents, police, and maybe the delivery companies, they will be stopped one of these days.
