UPDATE: February 2, 2018
The package thief and the man who helped her were found, arrested and charged, as reported by KOMO news.
A package thief filmed in Lynnwood, Washington, received what can only be described as “instant karma” when she tried to escape the scene of her crime.
Homeowner Lizeth Ababneh told Q13FOX that “karma” was indeed the first word that came to mind when she saw the footage captured by her security cameras.
In the footage, a woman can be seen exiting a car and running up to Lizeth’s porch. A few minutes before that, a deliveryman had dropped off a few packages for Lizeth.
The woman proceeded to reach down, pick up all three boxes, and attempt to run back to the car. And that’s when things took a turn for the worse — for the thief, anyway!
The woman slipped and seemed to injure herself pretty severely. According to the Daily Mail, the woman suffered “a gruesome leg break.”
Although the footage of her injury isn’t too graphic, it still might make you cringe.
Her companion in the car had to run over to hoist her up and take her back to the vehicle. In another surprising twist, the man then went back to steal the packages!
Lizeth found the footage “comical” even though the thieves took some medication for her husband in one of the packages. The Snohomish County Sheriff’s office opened an investigation into the theft and, according to KING5 News, the woman has been identified but not yet arrested or charged.
