An accused porch pirate has been arrested after wearing the exact same shirt the very next day to a South Carolina courtroom that he had worn to steal packages from peoples’ porches, according to authorities.
The series of events began after a picture of a man in a green and red North Face shirt was posted to the Goose Creek Resident Group on Facebook by somebody claiming he had stolen packages that had been left on porches in the neighborhood.
“Beware of this porch pirate!” the social media post began. “This was around noon today in The Oaks. Notice the empty Amazon package in his hand. It is something he stole off a neighbor’s porch and threw the empty package in my trash can (dumb crook) — and then stole the package off my porch (all on camera) and stuffed it in his backpack, with whatever else he had stolen in the neighborhood. He was with a second person also on a bicycle. The police have been notified.”
