EVERETT, Wash. — An Everett family says one of their parcels was stolen off their front porch by an Amazon driver while he came to deliver a package to their home.

KCPQ-TV reports a surveillance video shows the Amazon delivery driver making off with a parcel after he dropped off a package to Matt and Amanda Buxton’s home Tuesday afternoon.

Although the stolen item was only a $3 baby teether, they reported the theft to Everett police who shared the evidence with Amazon’s Everett distribution center.

Amazon told KCPQ-TV in a statement that the driver is no longer delivering packages for the company.

Everett police arrested the driver for misdemeanor theft.
