Some might call it poetic justice while others simply view it as a heinous act but, apparently a thief managed to take quite a tumble while trying to swipe a couple of UPS packages from a couple’s front porch. The unfortunate incident was caught on camera and shared on Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office’ Facebook page.
Bothell County Thief Severely Injured in The Incident
According to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office the Bothell house recently robbed was targeted by the same robbers at least a couple of times. After being robbed times and times again, the homeowners decided to install a surveillance system and asked UPS to send them text notifications when a delivery is made.
During the recent event, the Bothell homeowners managed to get a good look at the prowlers. The event was entirely caught on tape to the delight of the entire Sheriff’s Office.
Before the robbery occurred, a UPS delivery man visited the couple’s house and left three parcels. The security tape shows a van stopping in front of the couple’s home. After a couple of minutes, a woman can be seen getting out of the car, running towards the house, and jumping over the fence, going straight to the parcels.
The woman can be seen lifting the boxes and hurrying towards the vehicle. To her misfortune, during the hundred-yard dash, she slipped in a puddle and took a rather nasty fall. The woman can be seen agonizing on the ground before a second suspect appears, presumably the vehicle’s driver.
After helping her get up, the individual picks up the parcels and disappears together with the woman. Obviously, the homeowners were not impressed by this display, saying that one of the boxes contained some medication.
The security footage was handed down to the Snohomish Sheriff’s Office who’s now trying to identify the Bothell County thief and her accomplice.
