Mill Creek police are looking for a porch pirate who posed as a delivery man before stealing a couple of packages last month. The theft was caught on surveillance video.

It happened on the afternoon of Jan. 26 in the 2300 block of 145th Street SE.

The video shows the man carrying an empty box to the porch. He drops it off, then picks up a package that had been delivered earlier and carries it to his SUV. He then comes back and picks up a second package before leaving.

To add to how brazen this guy was, police say the residents were home as this was happening.
