Vimeo user alversae has posted a video which shows a UPS delivery guy wander up to the front of his house and steal his daughter's Christmas present—an iPad mini—right off the porch where it had just been left by FedEx.
Obviously getting a high-end piece of technology delivered and left on your doorstep is never the single smartest idea, but the fact remains that—of all people—a UPS driver shouldn't be wandering around stealing packages off of doorsteps. Fortunately, now UPS has seen the footage it no longer denies the claims that the item was stolen. Merry Christmas, from UPS!
Update: The video's been removed from YouTube and Vimeo, but you can watch a local news report of the incident below. Also, we've since found out that the UPS employee has been sacked and charged with theft. [KHOU]
