An Alhambra, CA, homeowner busted the neighborhood package thief when he caught her stealing from his own house.
The man who chose to remain anonymous noticed the woman in red circling his home outside.
When he saw the woman stealing his deliveries, identified as Rianna Medina, he whipped out his cellular phone and began to confront her. Medina refuses to accept responsibility. She even tried to convince him that his house is actually her house.
Once he tells her he is going to call the police, Medina throws the packages on the ground and flips him the bird. After the video was shared on social media, community members (even her family members) were happy to help the police identify Medina.
“We get mail thefts once in a while. We’ve put videos online. I’ve never seen 800,000 hits on any case, let alone a mail case like this,” Sgt. Jerry Johnson of the Alhambra Police Department told ABC News.
Following this news report, Medina was arrested by local police. The homeowner, who is a repair man, said his packages contained parts worth $1,000.
Clearly, Medina had her eye set on this particular household.
Fortunately, one father decided to take things into his own hands and crack this case himself when he suspected something was wrong.
