Grinch steals Christmas on Tanglewood Road


A woman was relaxing with her husband inside of their Carrington Woods home on Sunday morning when her phone lit up and a Ring Doorbell notification appeared.

She clicked on the notification and quickly realized that a porch pirate had been at her door just moments earlier. Her husband then bolted outside and attempted to catch up to the porch pirate, to no avail.

Baldwin2k spoke with the victim, who wished to remain anonymous.

"He basically stole my Christmas. I was so upset yesterday. I still am upset," she said.

One package contained a baby doll, while the other was a relatively expensive GPS system and headphones. The woman said that the electronics were her “husband’s big surprise Christmas gift.” He is a truck driver. 

The incident occurred in the 1870 block of Tanglewood Drive. Meanwhile, the MPD responded to another porch pirate theft that same morning in the 1850 block of Tanglewood. The lady that Baldwin2k spoke with said that a third neighbor also was victimized. 

The getaway vehicle was described as a Ford Focus with a Florida tag.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the MPD tip line at 414-4813.
