Video capturing the theft at Alex Castillo’s home on Wednesday was reported to the U.S. Postal Service and local police department.

“When I called the police and they came out to make a report they said it’s been happening more recently in the area,” Castillo said. “These people are coming and they’re probably taking electronics worth $500 to $600 or more.”

Exclusive video showed a car following a mail carrier then the passenger getting out twice and stealing packages left outside of two different homes.

Packages should be delivered to family or friends if you will not be home at the time of delivery, the West Covina Police Department stated.
