Doorbell camera catches porch pirate in action

A doorbell camera captured images of a young man stealing packages from the porch of a 20th Street home in Niagara Falls Saturday, mere minutes after the packages were delivered.

The homeowner told police that UPS delivered several packages to her porch at 3:05 p.m., and at 3:11 p.m. her doorbell camera captured images of a man jumping over the porch railing, taking the packages and scaling back over the railing. The packages contained four pairs of Nike sneakers and some Carter's baby clothing, police said, and had a total value of $729.

After viewing images from the camera, police were able to develop a tentative identification of the suspect, and are currently seeking him for questioning.
