Police looking for 'porch pirate' caught on camera

HOUSTON -- Police are looking for a thief caught on camera.

It's the biggest crime every holiday season, and we see it over and over again.

An ABC13 viewer sent us surveillance video you can watch above of a so-called 'porch-pirate' team in the act.

The video is from a home in Clearview Village near Scarsdale and I-45. One car apparently acts as a lookout when a second car pulls into the driveway a few seconds later. The man opens his truck and loads the package and is gone in less than 30 seconds.
