An Amazon delivery driver stole a package that was delivered earlier by UPS at a Pennsylvania home, police said. A woman in Wilkes-Barre reported a package being stolen from her home Monday, the AP reports. Surveillance footage showed a UPS driver dropping off a package at the house. Later that afternoon, an Amazon driver dropped off two packages and took the UPS package as he was leaving. Wilkes-Barre police said charges will be filed once the Amazon driver is identified.

The package was a gift of irony: Inside the stolen box was a Ring Doorbell security camera, reports WNEP, which posted a video of the theft. A neighbor who's lost a package to thieves said residents are stepping up security on their own. "If there's a package that's going to be delivered, we make sure that we know what time it's going to be, and we know that someone will always be here if we're not home to come and pick it up for us," he said. "Unfortunately, that's the way it has to be."
