JEREMY Vine showed a thief made off with one of packages from the front of his house.
The TV host shared a video of CCTV footage from outside his house of the moment the brazen thief goes into his yard.

Jeremy shared the video to his Twitter which showed the DHS delivery driver leave the package at his home in the lead up to Christmas.
The video shows how a man in a black hood then goes in to the yard and walks away with the package which was actually hidden.
To add insult to injury, the thief knocks on the door to see if anyone is home before heading off with the package in his hand.
“I got hit by a Porch Pirate a couple of days ago,” he tweeted. “At 1125 the @dhlexpressuk guy leaves a delivery in an agreed place; at 1207 the Pirate appears.”
Jeremy posed the question of how the ‘porch pirate’ knew to find the package.
“Is he following the van around? He knew exactly where to go. Parcel stolen, box found ripped open 100yds away by kind neighbour,” Jeremy wrote.

Jeremy shared another angle of the moment, with one fan pointing out a crucial clue.
The fan saw that the alleged thief was walking past the property as the delivery guy was hiding the parcel.
“Great spot! The Pirate is in the first clip too … now it makes total sense,” Jeremy wrote.
“I’ve now worked out EXACTLY how the ‘Porch Pirate’ struck my family in Christmas week … and okay, lesson learned, that’s the last time I nominate a large open box as my safe place. Take a look,” he added on the second video.
“He’s back. Watch how the brakes on his bike seemed to take him by surprise.”
“I now wish I had placed a small smoke bomb in the box.”
Fans were shocked to see such a brazen act.
“I can’t believe what I’m watching! The absolute cheek of it! And to knock on your door and pose as the delivery guy,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
Another added: “Don’t understand why he bothered knocking. May as well have just legged it.”
And a third commented: “Looking at fact that he walked past first they cycled back and was confused by brakes says to me that he stole the bike too.”
