Neighbor stops would-be porch pirate in MidwoodPosted: Updated:
A thief was caught on camera stealing a package from a Midwood porch, but he didn't make it far before a neighbor chased him down.
Aron Greenstein says he was expecting a package from a friend, but he wasn't sure when to expect it. Then on Sunday, he spoke with his neighbor who told him that he had chased a man down after seeing him walking around Greenstein's house.
In the process, the man dropped numerous packages that he had stored in his duffel bag.
Greenstein says he is thankful that he got his package back, but Greenstein says he worries that the crime could escalate to something more harmful.
Investigators have not yet caught the man in the video. Because he didn't get away with the package, he only faces criminal trespassing charges.
