WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas — Despite a new law that cracks down on "porch pirates," which went into effect Sept. 1, a porch thief was caught on camera stealing packages from someone's front door in Williamson County

And, now, Crime Stoppers are offering $2,000 for more information leading to his arrest.

The man caught on camera was seen stealing several packages of various sizes from a home in the Cat Hollow Community near Brushy Creek, the Williamson County Sheriff's Office said. He then loaded them into a light-colored, four-door vehicle.

Officials believe there may be two or more suspects involved in this case, and one or both are believed to have ties to the San Antonio area.
