Police are looking for a porch pirate who stole an album worth more than $500. Hear from the store owner who waited for this album for so long and how it could affect his business.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A Houston business owner is pleading for help in finding a rare album that was stolen right from his doorstep.

Sung, the owner of Eve Pink, a Korean pop music store in west Houston, shared with ABC13 a surveillance video of the April 19 incident.

The video shows the moment when the suspect pulls up in a car, gets out and runs up to Sung's front porch, and then takes off with the package. That package contained albums of popular K-Pop group, NCT 127, and their latest Japanese limited edition album "Loveholic."

Sung told ABC13 his music store orders items that take a long time to come in since they're usually from overseas. He added that the rare album that was taken, which was one of their long-awaited shipments, is valued at $536.

The suspect was reportedly driving a white Mustang and was seen following the delivery truck.
