TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A Tucson man has a warning to anyone expecting an Amazon Prime Day package at their doorstep.

Tim Wright was waiting for a package to arrive early last week.

When it never came he decided to look at the security cameras outside his home. Scrolling through the video he was shocked.

"Nothing is really safe around here. It has to be bolted down or locked up or put out of sight to keep things safe," he said.

The video shows two young men walking on the sidewalk with a flashlight.

One of the men looked at Wright's house and walked to the front door.

A second security camera catches the alleged thief picking up the package, then slowly running away.

The two have not been caught or arrested.

Wright says this isn't the first time mail has been stolen from his east-side neighborhood.

With a lot of Amazon Prime Day packages in the mail right now, you need to be on the lookout.

There are ways to protect your packages.

First: track your package so you know when it's delivered.

You can also chose to have your items delivered to a more secure location like possibly your work or a family member's house.

You can even tell the delivery person to put the package in a less visible spot.
