EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — With the holiday season rolling around, more and more porches will be filled with packages. Package theft is on the rise again in the United States, and the Tri-State is no exception.

A local homeowner is looking for help identifying a suspect, who stole one of their packages. The theft happened on Kratzville Road on Nov. 28. The porch pirate struck around 5:30 p.m., just an hour after sundown.

Luckily for the homeowner, they caught the porch pirate in the act. A home camera caught the blatant burglar, waiting for the right moment to strike. The suspect, seen wearing a white jacket with an 8-ball on the back, got away speedily on their bike. From the video, it appears that the suspect rode on a white bicycle with blue rims and black spokes.

A recent study found that $5.4 billion worth of packages were stolen in the past year. That amounts to affecting 35.5 million Americans, or roughly 1 in every 10. The current rise in package thefts is another reason to pay a little more attention to what’s being left on your porch.
