Video shows brazen porch pirates stealing packages in Boston

A Dorchester condo owner is standing up to thieves who stole six packages from the porch of her building in broad daylight.

The alleged theft happened outside a home on Dix Street on Wednesday around 5 p.m. The victim, Ally Burchill, says at least six packages were stolen by two masked men.

The men did not cover their faces until one of them walked onto the porch.

Surveillance footage from the apartment’s porch shows two men scanning the area before making off with several boxes.

One of the suspects is seen with a shopping cart full of items.

Burchill says, among other things, a pair of shoes she ordered for her 1-year-old son were stolen.

“I just hope more people start reporting it,” she said. “I feel like most people think they’re invincible and that they can take people’s things and no one is going to do anything about it.”

Burchill says she has contacted Boston police and plans to file a report with them on Friday.

In the meantime, she’s considering having her packages delivered elsewhere until she can find a better solution to prevent this from happening again.
