DAVIS (CBS13) — An alleged porch pirate is behind bars in Davis after being caught on camera by a victim’s Ring doorbell camera.
The Ring footage shows a thief riding along on a bike with a trailer. He quickly hops off, grabs the loot, and throws it in the carrier, and takes off.
Police later tracked down the porch pirate actively dumpster diving at a South Davis apartment complex. Dumpster diving is a violation of the city municipal code. After running a computer check, officers learned the suspect was on probation and had an active felony arrest warrant for which he was arrested.
After a search, police recovered the stolen property and returned it to its rightful owner.
