It’s been said, “You reap what you sow.” If true, a thief may be sorely disappointed.

A woman reported Wednesday her video doorbell recorded an African-American man steal a package from her porch.

The woman told police the package was dropped off at her home in the 2500-block of Wood Street around 3:45 p.m. At approximately 4:55 p.m. a man riding a bicycle took the package.

The victim told Officer Alexandria Duncan her video doorbell alerted her to the movement on her porch and recorded the suspect taking the package.

She said additional video showed the man coming back to the home around 5:23 p.m. Duncan collected all of the video and placed it into evidence.

The victim told Duncan she did not know the value of the package that was stolen because it was a gift sent directly from Kentucky American Seed.
