HOUSTON — A Houston man says he caught a UPS employee on video stealing an iPad mini — right after it was delivered by FedEx.

Al Alverson told KHOU he and his wife were expecting two Christmas gifts they purchased online to be delivered, however when they arrived home, there was only one package on the porch.

When Alverson looked at his home’s surveillance video, he saw the iPad Mini was delivered at 9:29 a.m. However, when he looked at the video at the 1:15 p.m. mark, he noticed a UPS delivery driver on his porch.

As shown in the video, the UPS employee picks up the FedEx package and walks away.

The Alversons told KHOU they contacted UPS about the incident. They said they were “getting the run around” until they posted the video on YouTube.

UPS told KHOU they were able to identify the UPS employee involved and he was immediately fired.  The employee was also charged with theft, according to the report.
