A man wondering why his package from Amazon was overdue discovered a four-legged thief was to blame. While reviewing security camera footage of his home in Palm Coast, Florida, this resident caught the “puppy pirate” – a neighbor’s dog sneaking onto his porch and making off with his mail!
“Palm Coast Porch Puppy Pirate caught Red-Pawed! I checked with Amazon to see where my overdue package was. The information they provided indicated that it was delivered 7 days earlier at 3:17 on July 25,” the man explained to Viralhog. “I backed up my security camera footage and it showed the mailman delivering it. Moving it ahead 90 minutes, I discovered the neighbor’s puppy carrying it off.”
He couldn’t believe what he was seeing. The puppy was very stealthily ensuring he could get away with his ill-gotten gains.
“He would stop and look around to make sure nobody was watching,” the homeowner said. “He carried it back to his yard, and started opening it.”
The homeowner would also soon discover that the pup was far more experienced in his life of crime than anyone thought!
“Later that day when the neighbors returned, we walked around the house and found the puppy’s stash. It had been raining everyday for a week, but we found the contents of the Amazon box scattered about, but undamaged in their protective boxes,” the man continued.
Who would have thought the dog was a klepto thief, greedily snatching purchases from throughout the neighborhood.
“The best find was discovering my recently purchased expensive prescription sunglasses undamaged in their chewed up metal case,” the homeowner said. “They had disappeared three weeks earlier. I also found a few things I didn’t realize were missing, such as a garden hose nozzle and brush!”
I’m happy that the homeowner found his missing stuff and that no innocent person (or animal) is going to be wrongfully accused. But let’s hope the doggie doesn’t get judged too harshly by the neighbors. It seems that this one homeowner put it all in perspective.
He said, “When I first saw the video I didn’t find it amusing, but quickly changed my mind when my friends found it hilarious and watched the clip over and over!”
Watch the hilarious clip for yourself (keep your eyes peeled on the left of the frame).
