A thief is captured on camera stealing an Amazon Prime package from a Flushing Resident's home.

Only a kleptomaniac addicted to Amazon Prime would be willing to commit such petty crimes.

Lenny Wayne, photographer at Le Pro Photography, was stunned to find his Amazon Prime packages stolen from his Flushing home each month.

“Every month or so my packages get stolen. So I’ve gotten fed up with the ‘delivered’ packages,” he said.

A frustrated Wayne decided to take matters into his own hands by developing an investigative strategy to catch the bandit.

“So, I’ve installed several security cameras on my property to see what’s really going on. So whenever I track the packages online it always showed up delivered. But once I got home, there’s no packages to be found. Then I went on to the recorded video footage,” he explained.

Not only did Wayne capture the crook on camera, he proceeded to upload the videos to YouTube.

As reflected in the April 13 footage below, the package snatcher who is wearing a black/orange hat and black jacket, sneaks up to the resident’s doorstep, snags the Amazon mail and power walks away.

“The funny thing was the thief left the empty Amazon box around the corner. What I’m thinking is that he took the package and emptied the contents out in his car, then discarded the empty box around the corner street and drove away,” Wayne speculated.

The victim also filed a police report and contacted the 107th Precinct in Flushing, where detectives conducted an investigation.

“I spoke to Detective Portillo yesterday from the 107th Precinct and he said he can’t do much since the thief’s face was covered up. I haven’t contacted the postal police yet. I am not sure if they can do much regarding this case,” Wayne told QNS.

QNS also contacted the United States Postal Inspection Service but a spokesperson declined to comment.

Detective Portillo confirmed that warning fliers are currently being circulated in the area to alert residents and help identify the crook.
