AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Police are investigating after a package was stolen from a doorstep in east Austin.

A viewer sent KXAN a Report It video of the crime in the University Hills neighborhood.

The video shows a Toyota Corolla entering the driveway of the victim’s home. Someone, possibly a teenager, gets out of the passenger side and walks up the walkway to the front door.

The car leaves the driveway, then turns around and pulls back in. The passenger took a brown package and then got into the back seat before the car drove off.

Police say the theft happened two weeks ago.
