Man steals package with gifts for students off front porch in Clarkston

(WJBK) -

The Campbells in Clarkston shared video with Fox 2 of a man stealing a delivery package off their front porch. The package was intended for Amy Campbell, a fifth grade teacher.

"She and her teaching partner have purchased gifts for their students," says Sean Campbell.

"Every year we buy books; we buy school supplies; we buy fun little trinkets and toys and it's always out of our pocket. That's just something that we want the kids to have a good Christmas and we know that we can be a part of it," Amy says.

The brown box had about 200 dollars worth of gifts inside and was left on the porch by the delivery carrier. Security camera footage shows a man in a bright, orange sweatshirt running across the law with the big, brown package in his arms.

The man drives off in a dark-colored Pontiac Grand Am. If you recognize him from the photographs contact the Oakland County Sheriff's Department.

Meanwhile, Amy says the company that she bought the gifts from is going to rush deliver her a package in hopes that the kids will receive the gifts by Friday.
