A thief stole packages from my house and I caught it on video

A package went missing around Christmas this year, so I bought a Dropcam Pro to keep an eye on our front entryway. Last night I got a notification of activity, around 9:45pm, while we were out with friends. I couldn't believe the video. See for yourself:

Today I called the police, who sent over an officer. He's going to circulate the video and see if this is a known thief in the area (we're in SE Portland, near Hawthorne/Division). I'm also replacing our mailbox with a locking type, and will be instructing all the delivery carriers not to leave anything when we're away.

As for the packages, Amazon has already refunded one of them. We're calling the other vendors to see what our options are.
