Just last week, we shared a dashcam video showing a Chevrolet Malibu driver running themselves off the road while texting and trying to take a highway off-ramp. This week, we’re bringing our dear readers another instance of a Chevrolet Malibu driver behaving badly – but this time, the crime is theft rather than distracted driving.
Millcreek, Utah resident Doreen Armstrong recently had seven boxes stolen from her front porch by opportunistic package thieves looking to capitalize on her giving Christmas spirit. Armstrong caught the package thieves in action on her home surveillance camera and later shared the footage with local NBC affiliate KSL TV. The video shows the two perps pulling up in a ninth-generation Chevrolet Malibu before they hop out, grab the packages off Armstrong’s porch and bolt off in their affordably priced family sedan.
These criminals made off with gifts for Armstrong’s children, grandchildren and her 98-year-old mother, according to KSL TV. In another box was a $1,000 jacket that her roommate had ordered online.
“I’m like, ‘Who are these guys?’” Armstrong told the station. “I kept thinking, ‘Who do they think they are, and why do they feel entitled to take my stuff that I worked hard to pay for?”
“I am hoping somebody will recognize the bozos that did this,” she added. “It’s not OK.”
While the suspects have not yet been caught by police, Armstrong was at least able to get a refund for some of her packages. Her surveillance camera caught the delivery driver dropping off her packages without ringing her doorbell, so she did not know they were sitting on her doorstep waiting to be swiped by some local degenerates. She later provided this evidence to the retailer, who agreed to give her a refund.
“It wouldn’t hurt to have a cheap video camera,” Armstrong said. “That’s all I’ve got and it caught ‘em. I just think that’s a really good idea.”
