LEANDER, Texas (KXAN) — Surveillance cameras captured a video of someone taking packages from a porch in Leander, and now police want people’s help to identify them.

The Leander Police Department posted the video on its Facebook page Thursday of the theft on Connellys Crossing. It shows a person stoop down and pick up a number of packages, before running to their car and driving away.

“Thefts like this are very easy so please contact the police with any suspicious activity in your neighborhood,” the post said. “You aren’t bothering us!”

Police ask anyone with information on the case to call Officer Autumn Kessler at 512-528-2800 extension 1056, or email akessler@leandertx.gov.

The holidays are a popular time for porch thieves to steal packages left on doorsteps. People can make sure someone is home when the mail is delivered, or have it sent to a secure location.
