ORLANDO, Fla. -

An Orlando man is trying to track down a thief after security video captured packages being stolen from his doorstep.

The man, who didn't want his identity revealed, said he expected to find two packages at his front door when he got home from work Thursday afternoon, but the packages were missing when he arrived.

After verifying delivery, the victim searched through footage of his home security system and discovered that the packages were stolen.

The video shows what appears to be a red 4-door Toyota stop in front of the home on Hemming Way.  A man then exited the car and walked toward the home.

The suspected thief, who was dressed in a blue T-shirt and blue jeans, held a phone to his ear as he approached the door.

After briefly stepping out of frame, the man carried two packages in his hand as he walked back to his car and drove away.

The victim said he contacted Local 6 in hopes that someone would recognize the suspected thief.

A report has been filed with the Orange County Sheriff's Office, but so far no arrest has been made.
