As reported at KHOU 11 News on Thursday, December 20, 2012, Al Alverson said he is expecting two packages, one from FedEx and one from UPS on Wednesday. He was surprised upon learning that the iPad mini via FedEx was missing, and was more surprised when he saw on video the UPS man stealing it.

“It said it was delivered at 9:29 a.m. So I go up and I have a DVR with all the cameras on it to take a look.” Al Alverson told the report, noting that the FedEx sent him a notification email, confirming that their delivery man has already sent their package.

After reviewing the video, Alverson saw the FedEx delivery man arriving in front of his house, with the box containing an iPad mini, which he said his Christmas gift for her daughter. The FedEx man can be seen checking a paper, confirming that his item is being delivered to the right address; and later left.

It did not take long when the UPS man arrived and placed a package in front of the house, and immediately left after making a doorbell. But surprisingly, he was seen returning after less than 2 minutes. He picked up the FedEx box, read the description on it, and left bringing the package with him.

“I got a call this morning and they were very helpful. They promised they would get me a replacement iPad today,” Alverson told the reporter, with KHOU 11 News saying that UPS told them that the thief was arrested by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday.

UPS noted that the man is just a seasonal worker and was only hired this holiday season to deliver packages. The delivery company added that he was immediately fired from his job and was charged with theft, emphasizing that they are making background check to all of their employees.
