Watch This UPS Driver Steal An iPad Mini And Get Caught

Kevin Smith
December 21, 2012

Earlier today a video leaked via Reddit of a UPS driver stealing a package from the front porch of a home.

The package contained an iPad mini, a Christmas present for the homeowner's daughter.

The package had been dropped off earlier by a FedEx delivery person but a UPS delivery guy came up, inspected the package and walked off with it.

The act would have gone unpunished had the homeowner not installed a camera at his doorstep.

The video has since been removed from YouTube and Vimeo, but here is a news report detailing the situation:

KEYWORDS: fedex; ipad; theft; ups
It's a Black guy so they'll probably remove all traces of the video shortly.

It is racist to show it unless they show a White guy stealing too.

It's not stealing, he is just removing it before someone trips over it and get's hurt. To say he is stealing, by gum well...

UniGoons. Personally I prefer Fedex over the UPS carriers anyday.

Those good jobs are hard to get.

There is a video at the site now. Might not be the original one that the guy posted himself. It’s a news report.

“His wife thought he was a little geeky for installing cameras.” LOL. Thief now fired from UPS and arrested.

Don't be so sure. All he has to say is that he got confused and he thought the iPad package was a UPS pick-up. Plus he was under enormous pressure because of hectic holiday deliveries. Plus the stress of his job has made him addicted to alcohol.

There's a decent chance an arbitrator will give him a pass. Crazy country, eh?

Racist video. The homeowner and the news station should be both be sued.

FedEx is an incredible company to work for. I worked for them in the mid 1980s for couple years and when I left I was making $16 an hour which was a fortune back then, and I quit like a jackass for a job that paid more and I thought would last. It didn’t. One of the worst decisions of my life. Fred Smith the CEO would visit us all the time, the guy was awesome, a real hands on guy. He would hang out with us and tell stories that would crack us. Just a regular dude. I worked for about 4 companies since then and never saw the CEO from any of them. Kim Jeffreys from Poland Spring was the absolute worst. I never seen a company so horribly run in my life. But what do you expect from a guy named Kim?

“His wife thought he was a little geeky for installing cameras.”

Yep, that’s what my wife thought in July when I installed mine. two months later i hadn’t finished installing all the cams. One day the police came to the door and asked if i could review my footage from the night before because my neighbor had his SUV broken into. I ran the footage and sure enough there he was walking across the screen. Unfortunatly his face was hidden by a hoodie (imagine that). Anyway when I showed the tape to the wife all of a sudden it wan’t funny any more. Her first comment after seeing a criminal walking through our front yard at 4 in the morning was “you are going to install the rest of the cameras Today right?”

Rang the bell, waited in his truck for a few minutes, and when no one responded; figured the coast was clear. Interesting how UPS played the denial game UNTIL the video went upon YouTube for all the world to see. UPS doesn't need THAT kind of publicity.

Hiring quotas can be a bitch.

Only white guys are crooks. Just watch commercials of someone breaking into a nice house, during the day, after mommy brings the kid in for lunch or something and has to set the alarm. Or the one where a white guy stole someone’s ID and is filling out a credit card application.

You can sign a release and have the delivery guy just leave it. If you watch the full video you can see the FedEx guy pulling the release form from the side window, checking it and the package to make sure they matched and leaving the package.

C’mon now people. I worked for FedEx in the 80’s and 90’s. Great company. My UPS guys here in Montana are awesome. It's a societal thing that has been ignored or excused and will soon explode. Then the big city idiots who thought it was a good idea to keep the wrong people in power might just turn American Idol off and wake up.

Probably not.

I switched our company's shipping to FEDEX for exactly this reason. the difference in cultures is obvious. The UPS delivery guys change every week, leaving product at different doors every time, will leave them outside in the rain, whatever. Our FEDEX guy owns his truck and route, is pleasant and friendly, is flexible if we have a problem, knows our people.

Waiting for the wailing of the liberals and Michael Moore, crying “The racists set up a black man to get fired right before Christmas. That poor man- he didn’t do anything wrong...”.

A company that shall not be named once threw a package over the fence into the shrubbery around a celebrity’s house because they couldn’t get onto the property.

Same company also delivered a package to an address that we regularly used instead of to the correct address, never used before, in the same zip code. They thought they were autocorrect.

If they send him to prison for this he’ll be spreading something else.

Those commercials are so funny! Living on the edge of the Newark Food Desert here in NJ, those things have no credibility at all.

Actually, I think they’re racist commercials. Where are the followup commercials featuring blacks, or Hispanics??? Don’t they deserve an equal chance to be in a commercial??

I have cameras monitoring the front of my home. You’d be surprised what goes on. Despite packages marked fragile and breakable, I’ve seen video of these delivery guys tossing packages up a ten-foot flight of stairs. Too lazy to walk up. Also caught a woman with two kids steal a package from my neighbor’s door. A teen drive down the street throwing rocks to bust a neighbor’s windshield. A neighbor bitch kicking and beating her two small kids when they were too slow getting in the car. (Which I reported to cops but they did nothing, although she was arrested another time for abuse.) I have full audio along with the video, and it captures arguments outside which are sometimes interesting (the bitch and her drug-addict boyfriends).

They are in those commercials in my area; we call it the “evening news”...

Another crime by a feral adolescent. They roam from trough to trough shoving their snout in, eating until it is empty and then moving on. The scumbags in the UPS union will fight the firing as “unfair” and he will be given a suspended sentence. In the end he will lose his seniority but little else.
