Reward offered for package stealing memaw in a minivan

- A granny with sticky fingers is accused of stealing packages from more homes in Sardis Forest. 

Victims tell FOX 46 that she looks like she is a pro, pulling up into driveways and taking packages off porches before driving off. They're asking for the public's help catching this "memaw in a minivan."

"Your day is coming granny, your day is coming," said Brad Wiedner.

Wiedner was eating lunch when he got a motion alert on his nest camera. When he saw the video, he thought the unsuspecting woman was coming to sell cookies.

"She got out, she went straight for my package, picked it up, went right back in her car and drove away. Seems like she's done it a lot and there's also other people who have commented and shown their video, it's the same lady. So, she's obviously hitting the Charlotte area."

A FOX 46 viewer posted another video to our Facebook page of what appears to be the same woman stealing a package from a neighbors porch in Mooresville. A third video surfaced, again showing the same car and what looks like the same woman. 

"In shock, just honestly shock. I didn't think it would happen in this neighborhood it's a great neighborhood, a lot of great families, a lot of great people and you always hear about it happening but you never think it's gonna happen to yourself."

A reward is being offered to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the porch pirate.
