HICKSVILLE, NY (CBSNewYork) — A Scrooge ran off with some holiday gifts at a home on Long Island.

John Blazich caught it all on video. A man in a silver car slowly driving by his home then into his driveway and within seconds, stealing the package that was delivered to his home.

“On the security camera you could clearly see the package was between the screen and interior door,” said Blazich. “They opened that up and took the package and ran. The whole thing took 15 to 20 seconds.”

Inside that package were gifts for family members.

“It was really just women’s sweaters and children’s clothes that were for Christmas,” Blazich said. “It’s annoying, we had to re-order them.”

Authorities said to avoid becoming a victim, have packages delivered to your office or have a neighbor who is home most of the day pick it up.
