A father from Maryland is being sought by the police after she said he had a package of one from his 5-year-old daughter last month Porch stolen.
46-year-old Gary Martin Smith is accused of stealing under $ 100, a conspiracy to commit a theft. The theft committed by the Hartford County Sheriff's Office on November 30 was recorded on a home surveillance video and posted on the department's Facebook page.
Inside is a little girl walking through the front yard of a house in the city of Bel Air, who grabbed a box near the door and ran away. At some point the child stopped and seemed to see someone near the road before running to the door.
The sheriff's department said a pair of boots were in the box. A spokesman told NBC News that the package had not been returned yet.
Vallan Hardison, who lives at home, previously told NBC partner KAIT 8 that she was shocked when she saw the video and saw a kid being picked up her package.
"People are stealing, but seeing someone so small doing such a thing is just incredible," she said.
An arrest warrant for Smith's arrest was issued Wednesday, and the sheriff's department was posted on Facebook. On Thursday morning he was still not in police custody.
