Porch Pirate Steals Gifts Meant For Grandchildren

Posted: Updated:
BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma -

A porch pirate was caught on camera taking Christmas presents from a Broken Arrow home, just minutes after they were delivered.

The couple says the man stole Christmas gifts meant for their grandchildren. 

They're hoping the video will help police make an arrest.

"You're sad, you're angry, It's like, the next thing is what am I going to do so close to Christmas?" said victim Joy Wise. 

Roger and Joy Wise were at work on Tuesday around 11:15 when a black Nissan pulled into their driveway.

"You actually feel violated, but the more you read up on it, it's everywhere," said Roger. 

"They were our grand children's Christmas presents we had ordered," Joy said. 

The man got away with a package, but he left a lot of evidence behind. He didn't realize he was being recorded on surveillance the entire time.

"Our side cameras actually picked him up driving up the side of the house, come around and park in the driveway," Roger said. 

The Wise's reported the crime, and are now warning others.

"I think that if you're going to have a package delivered, make sure that you have to sign for it," said Roger. 

They hope their surveillance will help stop these types of crimes so that others won't become targets as well.

"It's sad that people resort to stealing presents knowing that at this time of the year a lot of those presents are for kids," said Roger. 

Authorities say this is the time of year when package thefts are on the rise. 

The best advice is to stay vigilant, especially through the holidays.
