Grandma caught stealing Christmas packages

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) -

With the holidays around the corner,  you may expect all those packages to draw criminals, but maybe not like this one.
"The video shows an elderly woman who almost looks like someone's grandma. She just bends down grabs them like they're hers and walks away," says the victim." 

The victim, who asked that media not use him name, had three packages stolen from his front porch in Oakville, Missouri last Wednesday afternoon, just before five o'clock.  

His home surveillance camera caught what he and his wife missed.

The same black, H3 Hummer passes their driveway four times in less than five minutes.

Two minutes after the Hummer's last pass, the thief walked up to the porch and took the packages.  

"No one would expect an elderly whether or not it's a disguise, it sure looks like it's just an elderly woman to me. I would love for people to know and be aware this does happen. You see it on the news and you don't think it's going to happen to you.  I'm just thankful we were able to have cameras and get some evidence for the police," the victim says.
