FOX26 helps catch 'Porch Pirates'
FRESNO, Calif. (FOX26) —
Two 'Porch Pirates' are in custody, thanks to FOX26 viewers who saw a video we aired on the FOX26 News.
The Fresno Police Department says the two are suspected of stealing $4,000 worth of packages left on the doorstep of a home near Belmont and Clovis in Sunnyside.
The security video shows the car pull into the driveway and a man gets out and walks right up to the door and takes the packages in broad daylight.
FOX26 News showed the video and that video led police to 27-year-old Charles McGowan and 27-year-old Guadalupe Delgado.
The two were arrested and now face felonies, and police say they confessed to the crime.
The homeowner says they recovered around half of the stolen property.
