Man Confronts Woman Allegedly Stealing Package from His Porch Caught on Camera

ID #16-257

A would-be package thief had some explaining to do when a tough-talking Alhambra, California, homeowner confronted her in his front yard. Their exchange was captured on cellphone video.

The man had just arrived home about 4:40 p.m. Tuesday when he saw a woman walk up to his front door, pick up two packages and do an about-face, the Alhambra Police Department said. That’s when he turned on his camera and came face-to-face with her.

“You know I live here?” the homeowner calmly tells the alleged thief, who, after being caught red-handed, is forced to come up with an excuse on the spot.

“If I were you, I’d put that down,” the homeowner tells her sternly.

“Why?” the thief replies with a shrug. “My mother lives here.”

“Because those are my stuff – I live here,” he says. “This is my house.”

The woman sticks to her story, telling the man he doesn’t live there — until he threatens to call police.
“Take your s— then,” she says, dropping the boxes and storming off.

Police released the cellphone video in hopes someone can help identify the woman, who was wearing a red top, dark sunglasses and had distinctive tattoos on her right arm.

  • Crooks always stick to their lies even when caught red-handed. I wonder if the homeowner followed her? if not, why not? lol I wonder what she would have said if asked “if your ‘mother lives here’ as you claim then why are you removing ‘her’ packages? ” ughgh that woman looks like a typical chola. Or, “choya” as my sister calls them lol.
