In a video obtained by KHOU 11, the woman can be seen running barefoot up to the porch of a Houston home and swiping a box containing a dress from Nordstrom.
During the theft, though, the woman porch pirate loses her shirt, which was all captured by the homeowner’s Ring doorbell camera.

“She clearly was having a wardrobe problem on the way up,” Harris County Precinct 1 Constable Alan Rosen told Fox News. “I don’t think I’ve seen one of those.”
Of course, since TuskerDaily loves and respects all or brave police officers, it made us feel sad hearing Constable Alan Rosen say he doesn’t think he’s seen one of those, let alone two.
The woman, as of Thursday, remained at large. But Rosen told KHOU 11 that the department has a few leads.
“We’ve got some suspects in mind. We got a pretty clear look at the vehicle and of the person,”

Constable Rosen offered some advice to stop from being vandalized by porch pirates.
- Making sure someone is at home when a delivery is expected
- Asking a neighbor(s) to keep an eye out for your delivery.
“The worst thing you can do is just let your package sit out [at] your front door,”
Of course, if you are going to get victimized, then invest in a doorbell camera.
Many states require a stolen item to be valued at a certain dollar amount before its theft changes in severity from a misdemeanor to a felony.
The problem is so prevalent that lawmakers in Georgia have also proposed a bill that would make porch piracy a felony, regardless of the value of the items stolen.
