Stephanie and Jason Stanton of Denver, Colorado, are so excited for the birth of their first child. They’re just weeks away from their monumental new chapter.

The expecting couple recently traveled to Chicago for their baby shower. But while sitting in the airport, they received an alert from the Ring camera system connected to their front porch.

Jason had a gut feeling that whoever was at their front door was there to steal whatever packages were sitting on the porch.

He was right. “Sure enough, I pulled it right up, watched the person come up to the door, pull several packages from the door and scoot away,” Jason told KDVR.

The porch pirate was in the process of stealing baby registry gifts friends and family had ordered. Needless to say, Stephanie, a hardworking special education teacher, was really disheartened and disappointed.

Here’s the most frustrating part: This is not the first time during Stephanie’s pregnancy that she and Jason have been the victims of porch pirates.

While on their babymoon, they received an alert from Ring showing someone stealing packages of Stephanie’s prenatal supplements and basic items for her growing baby in the early stages of pregnancy.

The couple sat there on vacation, watching as the thief then wandered around their porch and stole their monogrammed pillows, too.

Stephanie and Jason are now sharing their story to help protect other families from going through the same thing.
