ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- It has happened again, someone stealing delivered packages from a front porch in south St. Louis.
Residents suspect the thief or thieves are following delivery trucks into a neighborhood watching the driver make the delivery wait awhile then steal the package. But residents are fighting back.
Mat Bradford who lives in the Shaw neighborhood is the latest south St. Louis resident to be a victim of a crook going after packages left on front porches.
Earlier this month we showed you video surveillance of a criminal swiping a package in front of a home in the Tower Grove East neighborhood, an increasingly common crime during the holiday season.
The bad guy got away with what was going to be a Christmas gift for Mat's new nephew.
