The surveillance footage shows as the Fedex driver enters the house gate, walks up the stairs, and tosses the package behind the porch wall. Meanwhile the thief can be seen waking by carrying a bag and taking a quick glance at the house.
A few minutes later, after coming around the block, the thief walks right up to the gate, and up the porch. He takes a glance around and places the package in the bag he was carrying, and makes off with his loot.
