Only On CBS2: Surveillance Video Catches Thief Nabbing $1500 FedEx Delivery

YORBA LINDA (CBS) — More and more people are doing their holiday shopping online, anxiously awaiting when the gifts will arrive at their door.

But what if thieves were also waiting on that delivery?

Joanne Padilla said she was expecting $1,500 worth of gift cards to arrive at her Yorba Linda home last week. She was home on the day she saw the FedEx truck pull up and she went to secure her dog before going outside.

When she opened the door there was no package waiting for her.

Padilla checked footage from her security cameras and was shocked to find a man getting out of a car, walking up to her porch and stealing the package.

The incident was reported to police.

Padilla said she wanted to alert other unsuspecting cyber shoppers about her situation to prevent it from happening to them.

    my package got stolen too. the UPS left it on the door and i was at home all day. one week later, the manager told me that someone have found the empty box. it was a present from someone i know. shame on UPS. they should of never put it in the front door of the apartment.

      BEING A RETIRED FEDEX EMPLOYEE MOST MAJOR PACKAGE DELIVERY SERVICES HAVE A BLANKET SIGNATURE RELEASE AGREEMENT WITH THE SHIPPER ON ALL RESIDENTIAL DELIVERY LOCATIONS. DUE TO THE VOLUME OF FREIGHT IN THE SYSTEM. THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO MAKE REATTEMPTS ON PACKAGES DUE TO THIS LARGE HOLIDAY FREIGHT VOLUME.. A COURIER IS TO USE DSICRECTION WHEN LEAVING A PACKAGE AND IF FEELS IT IS UNSAFE, SIMPLY LEAVE THE DOORTAG SO THAT THE RECIPIENT CAN PICK IT UP. DEPENDS ON THE COMMON SENSE OF THE COURIER ALSO AS AN EXAMPLE LOOK AT THE PROPOPHAL PACKAGES THAT WERE LEFT IN THE MAIN ENTRYWAY IN THE CONRAD MURRAY TRIAL.

    Easy fix. Make all packages require a signature. Only way I ship my eBay products. That way if the delivery driver just leaves the package without getting a signature, it’s on them. She has nothing to worry about. They are gift cards. They will ship her some new ones and cancel the others.
