Footage from a Belleville man’s surveillance camera showed someone take a package off his front porch Thursday afternoon.
Aaron Snively, who lives on Portland Avenue, came home at around 1:45 p.m., expecting to find his new tennis shoes on his porch. He had gotten an email from FedEx saying the package with the shoes had been delivered to the house, but his porch was empty.
Luckily, Snively has surveillance cameras set up on his porch, which he promptly checked. The video showed a man in a black shirt walk past the house and look at the porch at 12:54 p.m. A moment later, he turns around, runs onto the front porch and takes the small brown package.
“I’ve lived here for 13 years and never had a problem,” Snively said. “It isn’t even about the value or the shoes. You just feel kind of violated.”
Snively informed the Belleville Police Department of the alleged theft and showed them the video clip. A Belleville police officer said they are currently working on an investigation.
