    GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - A thief was caught on camera stealing packages from multiple homes in Gwinnett County.

    Police believe the man stole from at least four homes.

    Mary Stahnke caught the thief on surveillance camera at her home in Snellville.

    “I was appalled at first. I was like, ‘Really?’” she said.

    Police said the man also made his way through other neighborhoods in Lilburn. He was caught on camera there stealing packages that had a book and toy inside from the front porch of a home.

    Another victim said the thief stole a $400 birthday present from her porch.

    He also took a women’s winter coat from Stahnke.

    “I think he’ll look really nice in it,” she said.

    Police said the man has an accomplice who drives him around. Police believe they followed a USPS truck and waited to see which homes had packages delivered.

    “It’s just the audacity of folks in this day and age who can’t seem to respect other folks’ hard work. It’s just troubling,” Stahnke said.

    Police said the best way to protect your packages is to have them delivered to your job instead of your home.
