Christmas presents stolen from another Yakima porch

Christmas presents stolen from another Yakima porch
YAKIMA, Wash. -- Another Yakima neighbor is reporting Christmas presents stolen, right from the front porch.

UPS delivered three packages to this home in Yakima's Barge-Chestnut neighborhood.

Security footage shows a man snatched the Christmas presents from inside the screen door.

Homeowner John Schmella was distressed by the incident.

"Really upset and violated. It's a...seems like a safe, nice neighborhood, people out walking. And, it's really disconcerting to have your privacy invaded here in Yakima."

Yakima has seen a spike in front-porch thefts through the holidays. YPD says the trend is not limited to just one neighborhood.
