AUSTIN - Police are investigating after a South Austin homeowner caught a man steal a package from his front porch.
In the homeowner's security video which was provided to KVUE, the thief can be seen driving up in a white SUV "minutes after the package was delivered," he said.
"I assume he was following the UPS truck," the homeowner told KVUE.
The man in the video then is seen walking up to the door with what the homeowner describes as "some sort of rag or towel," before he carries away the package in it and drives away.
