Watch: Amazon delivery driver seen stealing packages after marking them as delivered

Crime

POLK COUNTY, FL (WTNH) — An Amazon driver allegedly stealing a package he was supposed to deliver was caught on camera.

Police in Florida said the driver dropped off the package, marked it as delivered, and even snapped a photo. But then, picked it right back up and left.

The homeowner reported it immediately, but despite having video evidence, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office says Amazon wouldn’t cooperate.

Amazon told them to get a subpoena before they would identify the driver.

“We thought this was a no-brainer case: here’s the date, here’s the time. Can you tell us who the driver is? Wrong. Amazon wouldn’t tell us.”

The police ended up pulling the license plate and tracking down 27-year-old Jose Campos. They say he confessed to the crime.
