Tulsa police are looking for a guy suspected of driving up to a home near 81st and Yale in the middle of the day and stealing a package.

The victim, Emily Warren, says that although the items taken are replaceable, she’s still concerned that the suspected thief could strike again.

The man was caught on surveillance video walking up to Warren’s home and taking a package off of her door step and getting into what looks like a white pickup.

“I looked on our security app and, sure enough, there was a guy that had just pulled up 10 minutes before and grabbed the package,” said Warren.

She says she realized her package was gone within minutes of getting an e-mail saying it had been delivered.

When she couldn’t find the package, she turned to her doorbell camera.

“I feel super violated,” she said.  “I mean, no one likes to get anything stolen from them, especially on their own front porch, so definitely not comforting.”

Warren says she called 911 and filed a report with police.

“The whole sense of security just kind of feels violated,” she said.  “It’s your property and, more than anything, it’s just your sense of security.  It’s kind of gone.”
