This was the moment a woman's Ring doorbell camera caught a UPS courier stuffing two packages into her trousers while making a delivery.
The footage, recorded at a Danville house on December 12, shows the delivery driver look through the homeowner's outgoing packages then proceeding to take a couple.
After an "hour or so" a police officer is seen knocking at the door, packages in hand, saying "guess what we found".
The homeowner commented online: "I was inside but I was working when I saw it was UPS I just went back to work.
Then I got the second notification that she rang the doorbell so I answered the door but she had already taken them by that point.
"I called UPS and the cops after she left, her supervisor had her drive back to my house.
There was an hour or so between videos.
"How could a small mail package ever be worth risking your job and jail?!
The only thing that might stand out on the packages is my company name and it’s not a very intriguing name.
"She would have been so disappointed had she opened them to find they were custom handmade necklaces worth less then $25 combined.
"I was glad to get them back too because they were ordered as Christmas gifts and I wouldn’t be able to remake them in time for Christmas.
I wasn’t looking forward to sending that email to customers!"
