Alleged porch pirate hits Ballard

SEATTLE — A porch pirate hit Ballard on Sunday afternoon, taking packages off porches in the middle of the day.

A KIRO 7 viewer sent us this surveillance video, showing the woman walking past the front door, then returning to grab the package.

The viewer tells us the woman took her neighbor’s package too, around 30 minutes after the FedEx truck delivered them.

In a tweet, the viewer said the pirate stole her Elf Cosmetics and her neighbor’s package from Parachute Home.

According to police, now is the time of year that package theft is the worst and porch pirates are adapting their ways to get a hold of your stuff.

Police in Kenmore caught a porch pirate on Sunday after an alert resident called 911 after seeing a woman entering the porches of several neighbors.

Kenmore officers located the woman with packages from five homes.

If you have any information on the woman in the video, call the Seattle Police Department and reference case number #21-329511.
