UPS delivery guy steals FedEx iPad delivery, but it all gets caught on camera

Not in this case, though, where both a FedEx and a UPS package arrived with a couple of hours of difference, and the person who had to get them isn’t at home. First, a FedEx package, which turned out to be an iPad, is delivered. The gadget is a gift for the homeowner’s daughter.
All is good and well until a second package arrives, this time delivered by a UPS guy. All looks normal - he rings the bell, no one answers so he drops in his package and walks away.
But it’s not all that simple. Luckily, a turned on security camera records everything, including the shadowy return of the UPS guy who then just steals the iPad that was delivered by FedEx and walks away with it under his clipboard.
Hopefully, his heart warms and he brings it back, but for the time being it is one less gift for a kid.
proof that people are really stupid

orrrrrrr, he just picked up the wrong package. In his mind, he won't leave the package because it might get lost. :O

In California, anything over a value of $400 is a felony. So, this guy could be screwed depending where he lives.

You just hate to see this, you have xmas gifts on the way for your love ones and this animal takes the package for himself. I have no remorse for a person like this, not only should he lose his job, a jail sentence, and emotional damages lawsuit should be paid to the family.

That's horrible but no surprise to me. I have had horrible experience with UPS. 2 years ago, my sister(who is in the AirForce) purchased and shipped a $1,200 Watch for my father and an award plaque for my mom, since she was stationed upstate California for Xmas and when the UPS guy dropped it off the box was damaged and opened. It was covered by their insurance. Someone stole it, we notified UPS that our package was stolen. They couldnt find out who stole it, and we didnt get any compensation for the lost watch. Along with last year I ordered simple phone, tablet and macbook cases about 5 ($70 total) through ebay and the shipper went through UPS. so again in December I only received 2 cases which I notified the seller they were not responsible. I contacted UPS and they said sorry there is nothing we can do. I was seriously shocked but isnt there a like a huge liability for a company who loses customers packages and should be compensated.

That's why expensive or valuable items over $50 in value shouldn't be left at a residence unattended. It could've easily been a random neighbor that thought this package was a steal as well. But what an idiot.
