A SNEAK thief who stole a van containing £5,000 of Amazon parcels is being hunted after his robbery was caught on camera.
The suspect climbed into a rented Avis van parked at the end of a driveway in Prescot, Merseyside, on Saturday afternoon after clocking the delivery driver was waiting at a front door.
CCTV footage shows the delivery man holding an Amazon package before running back to the van as he realises it is being stolen.
The dramatic theft was caught on a CCTV camera fitted to the outside of his customer’s house.
Cops believe the thief stole the Amazon parcels and transferred them to another white van before disappearing.
A source said: “The van had around 140 parcels in it worth about £5,000.
“It’s happening quite a bit across the country because it’s Christmas and it’s very busy.”
