Cape Coral Police Department and SWFL Crime Stoppers say what was originally reported as a “porch pirate” investigation Tuesday afternoon turned out to be a harmless package retrieval.

Police say, around 12:45 p.m., a woman was captured on a doorbell camera taking a package from a victim’s front door shortly after it was delivered. This happened along the 4600 block of SW 7th Avenue.

According to SWFL Crime Stoppers, the woman in the video was identified by police and confirmed to be a former resident of the home. She was picking up a package that belonged to her.

The package reportedly contained a coffee machine valued at approximately $600, but it’s unconfirmed if that was the item the woman was picking up at her former home.
