BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – Police in south Florida said a porch pirate’s plan to steal a package was foiled by an alert delivery driver.

A Ring doorbell camera recorded the thief casually walking up to the home, taking the box from the porch and quickly running off. The Amazon Prime delivery driver was on alert after noticing two people on bicycles following her truck.

The driver called 911 after she saw the woman running down the street with a package that had just been delivered.

The thief dropped the package in the bushes, and the driver returned the box back to its rightful owner.

Police have not yet been able to identify the suspect.

In an effort to prevent porch pirates, officials suggest having packages delivered to your workplace or have a signature required for delivery.

The also suggest investing in a doorbell camera or a home video surveillance system.
