Homeowner foils package thief by yelling at him through her video/audio doorbell

Update Dec. 23: The King County Sheriff’s Office called me to say they have identified the man. Stay tuned for more details.

Earlier: Lesley tells us she chased off a package thief Thursday afternoon by yelling at him through her Ring doorbell that has video and audio capabilities.

It happened on North 79th Street between Linden and Fremont avenues.

The man spent quite a bit of time trying to fit a large package into a cloth bag he brought with him. As he walked down the steps, she yelled at him through the doorbell, and he left the package on the porch and walked away.

The man was pushing a shopping cart and wearing a medical boot on one foot.
