Four Legged Porch Pirate Captured on Video Doorbell Footage Stealing Neighbor’s Delivery

While taking some time off at home, a dismayed homeowner discovered that deliveries were being stolen from her front porch. The homeowner and her husband reviewed footage from their video doorbell to discover that the thief was of the four legged variety – a massive white dog who held the box in his/her mouth, and after a moment’s hesitation, took off into the night.

We were on a ‘staycation’ and my husband woke me up in the middle of the night saying ‘you won’t believe who is on the front porch’! It was a porch pirate. I was shocked. My box, which had been delivered after I left for the trip, was promptly stolen and caught on camera. The thief was a massive white dog.

The homeowner found the box later the next day.

As for what was in the box? It wasn’t a bark box, it wasn’t food, it was makeup and skincare products. Though, it was toxin-free makeup and skincare, with organic jojoba oil, shea butter, coconut oil, etc. So, perhaps he just needed some quality skincare and a spa day? I did find the box the next day in a grassy area near our house, holes bitten into it but my lip gloss and moisturizer still intact.
