NE Portland porch pirate snatches shoe shipment

Crime

Ring doorbell video captured clear images of the thief

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Home surveillance caught a woman on camera stealing a package off of a porch in Northeast Portland’s Hollywood District.

The man who she stole from said the package contained hundreds of dollars worth of brand new shoes.

The theft happened Wednesday. Matthew Nguyen told KOIN 6 News had been notified that day by the company he’d ordered his shoes from that his shipment had been delivered but there was nothing on his porch when he got home.

He checked his Ring doorbell camera and saw a strange woman approach the front door and peek in the windows. She then rips open the package.

“It looks like she opened the package and checked inside and just took it and left,” Nguyen said.

The woman took off with $500 to $600 in Nike Air Force, Vapormax and Adidas Ultraboost shoes.

“I was actually really excited to get them and for me to wait a couple weeks and they not arrive — it was pretty disappointing,” said Nguyen.

He said he’s seen other security camera images on social media of the woman wearing the same Oregon Ducks hoodie and black tights with a ripped detail on the lower leg.

“If I can’t get my stuff back, at least have them off the street so they don’t steal other people’s belongings,” said Nguyen.

Nguyen’s house is located less than a mile away from another area experiencing a rash of crimes in recent weeks. HOTLIPS Pizza on Northeast Sandy Boulevard reported someone stole their valve stems off a fleet of delivery cars. The Hit the Spot food cart and Killer Burger were also burglarized.
