Doorbell footage shows the shocking moment a brazen thief steals an Amazon package from the front door in broad daylight
Shocking footage of a doorbell showing the moment a brazen thief steals an Amazon package from a front door in broad daylight.
Amazon customer Ben Palmer, 45, was shocked when he looked at footage of his doorbell and realized a thief had stolen his £50 package.
The video shows the Amazon delivery driver leaving the package at the front door and about 30 minutes later a thief in shorts and a t-shirt approaches him, steals it and then runs away.
Inside the box were whirlpool filters, whirlpool antifoam fluid and razor heads.
Mr Palmer, a married father of one child, was not at home at the time of delivery but received notification that the child had been dropped off.

However, when he returned to his £550,000 four-bedroom semi-detached house in Southampton, Hampshire, he couldn’t find it so he checked his CCTV.
Mr Palmer, who works as operations manager at Octopus Energy, said: “Some people’s moral compass is wrong.”
“I thought it was brave that someone would do something like that in broad daylight. That they would jump out of a van and steal a package like that,” he explained.
“I reported to the police online and received a letter saying they will not be investigating which only encourages these people to keep going.”
“I just don’t know why the driver didn’t knock on the door or leave the package somewhere safe.”
“There are people in the world whose moral compass is wrong and who haven’t considered whether they can afford to lose it.” It’s quite frustrating.’
He added: “It seems like someone is checking what’s being ordered and delivered and checking the boxes to see if there’s anything of value there.”
Hampshire Police have filed the case pending further information
“It appears to be of concern and someone at Amazon should be made aware of it.”
In the video, the thief appears to be walking toward a white van after grabbing the packages. Mr Palmer said he was “almost certain” the thief got out of the van.
Hampshire Police have filed the case pending further information.
An Amazon spokesman said: “We have very high standards for the delivery service providers we work with and the way they serve our customers.” “We are looking into this matter.”
