VIDEO: Tables Turned! Man Takes Package off Porch, Victim Takes Purse Out of Car

September 26, 2015 15:21 pm · 136 comments


A man who took a package from the front porch of a home near Denkinger Rd. in Concord learned the hard way what happens when the victim fights back.

Here’s what the victim had to say about the incident.

This happened at 4:12pm on Friday Sep.25. These people have no fear, three cars in the driveway and the female in the passenger seat even made eye contact with our grown daughter through the window.

They drove by several times and were not following a delivery truck, but just looking for packages or what every else they could steal.

My Daughter said someone is running up to the house, I ran out and realized he was stealing something and chased him to the car. I reached in to the window and tried to stop them, he didn’t care that I had her arm and when he started to drive off, I saw her purse and grabbed it with hopes there was ID and turned it in to the police.

If you see this white car or recognize him contact the Concord police and reference report #15-15900.

View the video below, and smile.

Victim wins.

LOL! Perfect! AP material!

(Man, you are one UGLY dude!)

Excellent. Hope no injury to homeowner’s arm etc. Hope you will be able to update the story when the PD catch up with the bad guys

Where's Sheriff Clay Higgins? September 26, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Turn yourself in boy. We have the whole thing on video. You stole from kind and upstanding citizens. You are a common thief, a low life. It’s not too late to change your evil ways. Each step you took as you ran away put you that much closer to hell. We will find you. Your picture has been seen by a million Claycord viewers. It’s only a matter of time. Already your low life friends are turning you in for the reward we’ll pay.

Elwood September 26, 2015 at 3:39 PM

What a fat f****r for a sneak thief!

I wonder how those people look at themselves in the mirror in the morning.

Sami September 26, 2015 at 3:41 PM

I am so happy you got such a clear picture of this low life on camera to share. That being said, could the homeowner please share what brand/model of cameras these are?

Random Task September 26, 2015 at 3:42 PM

sorry to hear yet the demwitts have declared that criminals have more rights than us prop 47 lets them loose. Those are bad enough yet they also do nothing if the item is less than $999.00. So you are more than likely going to reprimanded for trying to protect yourself and property as they shake the hand of the person you stole the purse from and ask her if she wants to press charges. Yeah I know law abiding citizens have less rights than scum ….see the demwitts like scum they bring in fed dollars that they can pilfer easier than state tax money in my opinion of course. Stay safe Piiilgrims

LawAbidingCitizen September 26, 2015 at 3:44 PM

Wasnt there some package thief that looked like this guy before? I remember that bald looking head either from a past claycord post or somewhere

This is what I want to say... September 26, 2015 at 3:45 PM

I hope that fat ass keels over whilst trying to choke down his next super Big Mac….

Me September 26, 2015 at 3:51 PM

Love it. This homeowner and his daughter are heros. I hope the cops catch this piece of sh@t.
I had a package stolen off my porch a few months ago. No video. No help from Concord PD. I’m out $300.

Anonymous September 26, 2015 at 3:54 PM

I’m assuming the purse belongs to the passenger, and was not a stolen purse.

Good for the home owner, and he probably prevented a few more. Don’t think I would have ran up to the car tho, I would be worried about getting shot.

Should NOT have given purse to Cops September 26, 2015 at 4:01 PM

They will have to impound it as evidence and cannot divulge contents. They won’t pursue this as no crime was committed….the fat pig dropped the package…Posting her name and address on Claycord would have been much better punishment

thx4youropinion September 26, 2015 at 4:07 PM

@Mayor — Same guy?

Anon September 26, 2015 at 4:07 PM

That’s awesome. Good for you to have taken the initiative. Did you make note of her address for future use??

Jo September 26, 2015 at 4:10 PM

Was there ID in the purse??

Duck September 26, 2015 at 4:21 PM

@ #16
That and a weekly bag of flaming poop delivered to the thieves home , would be perfect.
Knowing where they live and their name you could come up with some really good ways of getting back at them.

Wine Cooler September 26, 2015 at 4:22 PM

If it’s not the same thief, they sure look alike. If the homeowner was home, why was the package still on the porch? If you’re expecting a package, especially if you’re home that day, listen for the door. It could be UPS or Fed-Ex.

Silva September 26, 2015 at 4:26 PM

I think you guys did it. Looks like the same guy to me!

BT September 26, 2015 at 4:29 PM

FYI . felony is over $950
taking the package, even if you drop it, is still taking the package and can be prosecuted. The high tech term is “asportation”- meaning its been moved

Ricardoh September 26, 2015 at 4:35 PM

I would like to congratulate the home owner for having such a good video system. With well placed cameras. If the video gets on the news the guy should get caught.

Palermo September 26, 2015 at 4:39 PM

He probably beat the woman who let her purse be taken away. Hope they get him.

Theresa September 26, 2015 at 4:47 PM

It’s a sad world we live in today where people are unbelievably stupid. Trying to steal in broad daylight. One problem I have with the United States Postal Service is that when they bring a package to the door they don’t knock or ring the bell so folks may not realize that there’s a package on their porch. FedEx and UPS always knock/ring doorbell even if no signature is required.

2BITS September 26, 2015 at 4:48 PM

Yeah us!

Found out who he is September 26, 2015 at 4:49 PM

I always thought he was just playing a dummy in The Office, guess he really is one!

Cellophane September 26, 2015 at 4:53 PM

Find the guy, try him, convict him and then shoot the bastard. Same for anyone else involved.

Shooting felons does not stop crime, it just stops that particular felon from costing us taxpayers any more money.

Rob September 26, 2015 at 5:00 PM

“”I saw her purse and grabbed it with hopes there was ID and turned it in to the police.”

Ok… So did the purse have an ID in it?

Yay Goats! September 26, 2015 at 5:17 PM

They will get her for theft of a purse now. SUe her in court and win.
Judge Judy

Thatguy September 26, 2015 at 5:57 PM

It is the same guy! Here is the problem though, obviously this guy is not afraid of the consequences because isn’t any for this goober! He lives in our city, obviously renting car now instead of his dumpy old gray Chrysler van. Guess he is starting his Christmas shopping early this year.

I would imagine he must be on some sort of probation from his last arrest and that should come with some sort of search clause. Last time they served a warrant on him they were able to get the packages he stole before last Christmas. I hope CPD or his probation officer pays him a visit in the next few days as he is obviously rolling dirty.

Since incarceration does not seem to do the trick, maybe we should go back to the days of public humiliation. You know, like tar and feathering and placing criminals in stockades. Once a criminal is convicted they would have to report to Todos Santos Park, enter under those fine arches for their weekend of humiliation. It would probably draw more people to downtown due to the potential entertainment value.

Kids that play in the park would learn that there are consequences since their parents are to afraid to apply any. And maybe, just maybe the world we live in would slowly improve, prisons would become less populated and we could live in peace and harmony.

Oh who am I kidding, these dirt bags have more advocates then we do now. Bar you windows, place vicious animals around the perimeter of your homes, and arm yourselves because we have neutered our police and justice system so bad that now we think they’re the criminals.

I really do like the camera system this resident had and I am glad that he chased that goober! I would imagine it made him trade in his rental today. Don’t want to get caught in the same ride twice.

Duchess of Martinez September 26, 2015 at 6:20 PM

I take it with all that excitement the license plate number was not taken down? The purse grabber did have a view of it. The thief almost looks like he’s short a few spoon’s in the drawer. Would be terrible if someone was conning a mentally disabled person to commit these crimes

Good for you for trying.

Still think a huge sting operation would be great with fake packages that have GPS tracking

THE ANIMAL September 26, 2015 at 6:20 PM

Hey lard ass, I’m expecting some packages at my place ( Canterbury ) , come on by !! Puleeeeze come by………….

I love these stories September 26, 2015 at 6:22 PM

I’ve been saying it for a while now. People are sick of being prey for these lowlife scumbags and they’re fighting back. Lowlife scumbags, take note.

Justin September 26, 2015 at 6:35 PM

Republican Presidenital Candiate Rand Paul supports Prop 47:

“California’s actually done some good things,” he said in Irvine. “Proposition 47 about a year ago or six months ago took some of the minor drug felonies and made them misdemeanors and, from my understanding, you have more room in your prisons now for violent criminals. They’re not getting out early.”

BTW: mail can potentially be prosecuted as a federal crime and not subject to Prop 47 – the more you know.

Pamela September 26, 2015 at 6:50 PM

They have him in custody today from the help and the attention to this story. Thank you everyone!

the Shi ite September 26, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Before Mayor and #8 posted I though I was having Déjà vu.

bluebird September 26, 2015 at 7:00 PM

If CPD contacts the owner of the purse, and it is the passenger in this car, she will probably tell them she didn’t know what he was doing, she is innocent, she would never steal packages, etc. Better look in the purse for stolen checks and credit cards.

Society is so mean to these types of people. It’s never their fault. I work with a chronic liar and she was caught in another lie this past week. Of course she didn’t do it. The boss is to blame. He’s out to get her fired. Yeah right.

Duchess of Martinez September 26, 2015 at 7:15 PM

Perhaps a sign could be made to say “You are under Surveillance. Mail theft is a Federal Crime” distribute to as many areas that have these issues and post.

I’d also like to know if using out Juniper Hedge as a rubbage receptacle is considered littering with fines etc. Today we fished out a Chinese Take out meal for one (food inside and everything). Always amazed at what is drowning in the gene pool edge.

George September 26, 2015 at 7:22 PM

Anonymous September 26, 2015 at 8:21 PM

I think you could make a case that they used force to complete the crime makes it a robbery which is a violent felony and state prison may await these folks.

Someone says they are in custody . That true?

anon September 26, 2015 at 8:31 PM

Your ass is cooked. Good job homeowner. Be on the lookout for this POS

Knuckle Head September 26, 2015 at 8:33 PM

Maybe he was just looking for a Box Lunch.

bubbles September 26, 2015 at 9:06 PM

Great videos! A few years ago in Martinez I saw a vehicle pull up to a mail box suddenly and passenger reached out opened mailbox and removed a card. I was right behind them and had to stop when they stopped, got the license even took video of it with my phone, followed them while on the phone with Martinez PD, video still on and got them stealing mail from 2 more mailboxes on video!. Never lost sight of them all the way till PD pulled them over. I watch for 5 mins and then they drove off…WTF, I drove up to the cop and asked what happened. He told me the vehicle was registered to the courts of Martinez and the people driving could not have done what I witnessed. He didn’t want to look at my video at all even after I told him they hit 2 more mailboxes all on my video. I went back to the home that the mail was taken from (cop met me over), we talked to homeowner and they verified along with many neighbors their outgoing and delivered mail has been stolen several times in last few weeks by eye witnesses. This particular grab they got a birthday card the victim had mailed out with a check in the card.
So I flat out asked the cop what was going on and he looked at me and said we don’t have time or resources to go after people like that UNLESS we catch them with a awful lot of mail they have stolen, and since he didn’t have a search warrant for the car he pulled over he couldn’t see the mail they stole in view but stated that I must of been mistaken what I saw, what I recorded and witnessed. BS, cop just didnt want to have it blow up into a internal investigation of city employees.

Citizens need to stand up themselves with these thieves. Cops aren’t gonna do much of anything unless its a big enough theft to make it worth their while.

So in this instance employees of the Martinez Court borrowed this Court registered vehicle on their lunch hour to go steal mail.

Sickoftheives September 26, 2015 at 9:18 PM

I would also love to know the brand and model of these cameras. It’s sad that we have to keep record of the comings and goings of people in our neighborhood because of scumbags like this guy.

Microphallus September 26, 2015 at 9:22 PM

All those camera angles reminds me of that classic Atari 2600 game Atlantis, where you had cannons (cameras) from each side and the center going after the bad guys…lol.

Dr. Jellyfinger September 26, 2015 at 9:28 PM

Sometimes thieves order things with stolen credit cards & have them delivered to random addresses. They follow the tracking info and steal it off the porch after it is delivered.

It happened to me once.

I found a big screen TV had been left on my front porch & I brought it in. Correct address, but I am NOT Olaf Knudsen.

A few minutes later a fat Latino guy shows up and says he’s Olaf & UPS said it delivered to me by mistake…. so I gave him the box.

A couple days later when the cops came by it all made sense…. Oh well, fool me once… shame on you.

Bird Lover September 26, 2015 at 9:41 PM

Interesting that this is a white middle class man who looks like he could live in Alamo or Danville. Not a meth freak, not black , not Hispanic or a crazy type. So see Claycordians, it takes all types to do bad things. You cannot throw the race card here or the low class card. Ha Ha.. I think that is kind of a good lesson to the judgmental know it all folks that seem to rule the Claycord culture. Carry on.

Good job. This guy sucks. Just a guess, he probably can’t out run a K9.

The day after Christmas I take the whole month worth of my cats excrement and put it in a big box that looks expensive and put it in the back of my truck and then go shopping at Sun Valley and the last 5 years it has always been gone when I come out!

OMG! I LOVE it! Wish the homeowner didn’t loose a package, but oh oh oh it’s too good to see the homeowner (Batman?!?) come out with that purse.
Sweet revenge! I’m going to fill up a nice brown box with all of my lab’s poop and leave it on my doorstep. Thank you so much Homeowner Hero! You are my hero. Just picked out a nice set of security cameras because we live in Concord too. So there is a lot of crime and ALOT of angry homeowners! Thank you again!

Sellnders September 26, 2015 at 11:50 PM

I’m just going to leave a box full of dog poop on my front porch for idiot package snatchers.

bubbles September 27, 2015 at 12:17 AM

And after all that the guy dropped the package? Geez he’s not even a competent thief. I’m surprised the guy chasing him didn’t go after the thief and trip him up. Lots of things to think about when you are chasing someone to their car.

Anonymoud September 27, 2015 at 6:46 AM

Dear Bubbles,

Your story doesn’t ring true.

Lionel Hutz September 27, 2015 at 7:01 AM

Running after someone and reaching into their car as they’re driving away, all to try and save a package is begging for trouble. You have the video, write down the license plate, the car, and the description. The package can most likely be replaced. Your health, life, and safety, on the other hand, are worth far more. Everyone wants to be the hero until they get hurt.

Work For a Living September 27, 2015 at 7:30 AM

@Bird Lover. Your bar is too low. This guy has not reached the height of middle class. He’s still at the No Class level.

Hey Lionel...... September 27, 2015 at 8:08 AM

Maybe they should also be reported to the Easter Bunny…….

Just Say'n September 27, 2015 at 8:10 AM

Ease up everyone! Remember ” Fat lives matter”.

Duchess of Martinez September 27, 2015 at 8:23 AM

That’s quite a story and its good you had all that time to do that. Considering the fact I have not seen a job opening for the city of Martinez in eons ….decade? I always wonder who works for them. Never seen a city if MTZ car before. Seen county cars buy not city cars. Are they unmarked?

Parts of the post werent clear as to what and when with the card. I’m guessing you saw them remove someone that looked like a card and the house owner confirmed that. But I do know that your clip amd witnessing would have been used as part of a stolen check report to the bank at least and part of their investigation. The comments about a lot of mail needing to be stolen weird. Did you or this officer contact the Post Master General? Something missing from the story (except the card).

Many people now are having their mail boxes locked or installed slots in garage or wall .
Interesting story, wonder what the new MPD Chief would think of the Police officers explanation of not doing anything about it. If you truly had proof and on film…pretty weird. I’ve heard weirder. But they have several jurisdictions now. Even the people with mailboxes could have pursued/action with your evidence. Did they?

The middle child September 27, 2015 at 8:36 AM

Its amazing to see how presumptuous and cruel some of you are. There are men out there who are raping and murdering our children and you say and do nothing. I happen to know and love this man. No I DO NOT approve of this behavior or any like it! I am ashamed. However, he loved me when I thought no one else did, he protected me when I had no father and countless other things throughout my life. He is my brother. No I do not know where he is or why he did this and to the people he did this to I am SO sorry. I do know that desperate people, do desperate things. He was not raised like this. He came from a Christian home with a loving mother. You can say what you like but someday you may find yourself reading about your own loved one in the media being trashed. It hurts. I wish he would change. But I can do nothing about it but say on behalf of his family that we are SO sorry. Sometimes when someone deserves love the least is when they need it the most.

ggg September 27, 2015 at 8:56 AM

I believe that it is still permissible to sentence a criminal convicted of a misdemeanor for a term of up to one year in jail. It is law enforcement who refuses to keep them in jail.

thx4youropinion September 27, 2015 at 8:56 AM

@#66 Anonymoud — “Dear Bubbles, Your story doesn’t ring true.”

LOL, Anonymoud. “Papa says, ‘If you see it from Bubbles in it’s so.’”

Then, too, Papa missed this blah-blah (#21) from Bubbles just the day before:

Poor Bubbles. Such a change from a stoic, upstanding citizen to one who wants to handles things his/her own way off personal or renter’s property.

Wine Cooler September 27, 2015 at 8:59 AM

#67, I totally agree. Finally a voice of reason. If you know you have a package coming (especially if you’re home), watch or listen for the door. If somebody steals your package, write down the license plate number and call the police.

Reaching into the vehicle is looking for trouble.

The homeowner wasn’t thinking very clearly.

Cindy September 27, 2015 at 10:04 AM

Great footage! It looks like the same pig that broke in one of our work trucks about a month ago! Our cameras too captured it, although ours happened at night. It sure looks like the same guy! Good to think that the victim didn’t appear to be injured. I hope they catch this piece of sh..! We are so fed up with this stuff! We have been hit literally about 10-12 times in the past couple of years!!!

It’s not law enforcement that refuses to keep them in jail, it’s the DA and or judge.

What stopped you from taking the video to the news media? Chief of Police? D.A’.s office? That’s the saddest part of your (believable) story.

@ The Middle Child... September 27, 2015 at 10:52 AM

FYI: We (society, law enforcement, etc.) don’t care how you feel.

Boo-hoo… really. Judge a man by his (most recent) actions, not how you feel about him, your relation to him… or how criticism of him makes you feel… (seriously, did you just write that!?).

He stole. He was caught, He was caught stealing again. He’s a serial thief. It’s time you stop enabling his behavior. Hopefully he was on probation and jail-time will help to sober him up.

anonymous September 27, 2015 at 10:53 AM

Isn’t this the same guy who was caught stealing stuff a year or two ago? Wasn’t his name Dan (sorry don’t remember last name)?

thx4youropinion September 27, 2015 at 10:54 AM

@Lionel Hultz #67 — “all to try and save a package” …

“All to try and save a package?” You mean the one that he obviously saw being thrown back at him as the fat man ran?

I’m sure he had other intentions — which, obviously, were met. I’m also certain that he wasn’t intimidated by a running fat man.

no money September 27, 2015 at 10:59 AM

He looks like the picture I went through his name is Daniel something he got arrested in 2012.

Silva September 27, 2015 at 11:32 AM

Yeah Bubbles’ story caught me at the part about the card. What kind of card did you see? Business card? Post card? Birthday or aniversary card? Gift card? Wouldn’t you have to be pretty close to know it was some sort of card, and not some junk mail or something?

The middle child #72, Go ahead and love your rat brain brother, it’s your job, not ours. Sorry.

Also a middle child. September 27, 2015 at 11:44 AM

Ohh, he’s from a Christian family. That changes everything, NOT!!! Apparently he was too busy shoving pork rinds in his pie hole when the 10 Commandments were being read. You know, “Thou Shalt Not Steal”. Yeah , that one. Looks like he’s made a career out of this as he has been caught before. Desperate people might steal food or diapers, lazy slobs steal other peoples stuff that they worked hard for. The only one that should be ashamed is him, but then you would actually have to possess the shame gene.
You can bet if someone I knew did something stupid enough to be posted on, not once but multiple times, that I would be the first one to lay into them. We Claycordians have little sympathy for thieves.
“Men are raping and murdering our children”? Really? Tell us who, or produce a video and rest assured the Claycord community will rally to their defense. SMH.

CereBellum September 27, 2015 at 12:05 PM

This is so very similar to the other video posted on September 25th, re: Package Stealing Thieves take box on doorstep in the Crossings. It’s obvious from both videos that it’s not the same person, however what are the chances that they are part of a ring of many package thefts in say a 3-4 mile radius? Really creeps me out!

lizzie September 27, 2015 at 12:20 PM

FYI— I phone 6 S is being shipped to many people. I am sure there will be a lot of losses in the days to come! I ordered some items from Overstock and for whatever reason UPS changed my delivery to USPS.(not Overstock but UPS) My mailbox is on the street and my mail carrier put the package on top of my mailbox!!!! Thank goodness my neighbor saw this and took the package. Also illegal, but what the hey, it was not stolen. Everyone should look out for one another, and keep those camera’s rolling…………..

The real issue here is that the Contra Costa DA said two years ago, that they don’t have the funding resources to prosecute these low level crimes. I am sure Prop 47 adds to the problem because other cities are experiencing the same upswing in crimes.
I wish an investigative reporter or whistleblower site would investigate where the DA’s money goes to see if the funding is there yet, or have those funds been redirected to other “luxury” items or services at our expense?
Don’t blame law enforcement. They are doing their job… enforcing the laws.

For “middle child”….Sorry your brother has become a scum-bag….But if i catch him stealing from me or mine, he’ll be keeping a team of doctors busy, for sure……

What people should do is if you have dogs scoop there poop and put in a box wrapped or addressed on the porch and let them take that then they will be in for a surprise and maybe get it

Random Task September 27, 2015 at 3:34 PM

SORRY BUT KUMBYAY is not the answer that is what has destroyed this state from inside. The demwitts feel gooder’s over the past 50 years have indemnified us to servitude of city councils and county boards … voters made prro votes and allowed these entities to have full control and absolute power to control us as they see fit …the influx of section 8 and illegals is part of that as it drives down property values and allows for buy outs and subsequent rent raises and little to no tax revenue based on the city council giving away those rights to entice developers to line the pockets of city council and county board members and they have to line the pockets of the congressman and governors. This cycle has grown exponentially by lemming voters and it is all but too powerful to be brought down since it would take a huge change and an actual brain to which this state is so corrupt has none needs none since everything is provided by hard working tax payers. They want to remove the middle class and only have a high class paying huge taxes to support the lower class ( dem voters ) so the dem’s can steal all they want legally from the fed …….opinion based ….as actual facts have been corrupted by state mandated corruption of facts as they deem inconsequential to serve a purpose to the means of being corrupt and or above reproach. Enjoy the bad voting and lemming mentality that YOU have brought to this once proud state and area known as Claycord. you should be ashamed of yourselves for destroying schools and allowing the lies and corrupt politicians to force us into indentured servitude to their cause …or rather yours.

TY Claycord for the update.
“They are not in custody, yet, but they know who the guy is. Same suspect as previous story from three years ago.”
Now all of us know Daniel Price.

Birdman September 27, 2015 at 6:33 PM

I no this person, he does do meth even though he is heavy. Also thats a family members car! He is the one who did it a few years ago!

Pamela September 27, 2015 at 7:38 PM

We received a call from the police department, this guy is in custody.

Anonymous September 27, 2015 at 7:38 PM

Several folks have asked about cameras. We have a RECONYX lic plate camera. Works night with IR flash. It’s pricey but takes way cool pix. Got the 110 volt adapter.

One thing: make sure no leaves are blowing in front of the camera or it keeps going off until the card is full.

I think this is what Lafayette PD has mounted around the city.

re: your Overstock package being shipped UPS and delivered by USPS(post office).

UPS has a service called SurePost. How it works is that for a lower shipping rate UPS will pick up the package from the shipper, process it through their network and then tender it to the local post office to make the final delivery. That’s how come your package was left at the mailbox by the postman(woman).

FedEx has the exact same service; theirs is called SmartPost.

The post office is delivering more and more packages these days. Their TV Commercials are exclusively targeting their parcel delivery and pick up services. They tend to leave the smaller packages at mailboxes ,or only make one attempt on signature delivery packages and then leaving a note to pick it up at the post office.

Their is another regional carrier that delivers a lot of Amazon packages. They are called OnTrac and they drive small unmarked white cargo vans. They usually do not knock or ring the bell when delivering and tend to leave the packages standing up in front of the door in full view from the street.

About 30 years ago UPS delivered nearly 80% of residential packages. Nowadays it’s about 25%. There are many more companies delivering packages now that online ordering has changed shopping habits.

Bird lady September 27, 2015 at 8:30 PM

You are quick! Now ask for office FIgo to go pay a visit. He’ll take care of the matter for good. and get a video .

Bird lady September 27, 2015 at 8:31 PM

I worked with a woman that was heavy and she did meth. and a 2nd woman i believe was doing meth was a bit overweight.

tita September 27, 2015 at 9:02 PM

Sorry for the sister that has this looser for a brother. Yes, he was kind to you because he was probably stealing from you also when he visited. I’m sure he was a loving baby as all babies generally are but unfortunately he turned into someone who causes harm to others just to get a little money to buy a belt that he needs as his pants won’t stay up….Maybe a little REAL jail time will knock him back into the world of “working” for what you have….and he will NEED a tight belt in most jail situations…..

How about a box filled with..... September 27, 2015 at 9:35 PM

Nokeem September 27, 2015 at 9:57 PM

Nice suggestion and thank you. We have plenty of treble hooks. Do I have to put a warning label on my package, that’s about to be stolen, and warn the dumb-ass scumbag who is going to try and steal it? I have to put warning signs all around my house FOR THE Criminals who might break into my house and hurt themselves *sniffle* actually have to WARN the CRIMINAL so he or she or both won’t get hurt while they steal all my belongings. No, it’s not for firefighters or police, so you who protect them and probably represent them in a lawsuit, but don’t live anywhere near them, cuz they are dangerous, well, you can just sit down. I live in Concord and you have to protect yourselves and your neighbors because there is no one else. Concord’s Mayor and City Council are silent – but they aren’t silent in the CNWS contract huh? *cash register sound – the real sound of silence•

RC September 27, 2015 at 10:24 PM

108 thank you for the delivery system explanation, as I have been trying to figure who delivers what, eventhough I may expect that if I read or someone tells me that “XYZ” is the delivery company, I would expect that company to actually make the delivery. Regardless, of who pays who to actually deliver a package, ANY delivery company, including the U.S. Postal Service needs to make an honest attempt to ring a doorbell or knock on the front door.

I can’t tell you how many times last Christmas, I would get tracking messages, stating that a package would be delivered on a particular day, by “end of day.” Though I was home most days and most of each day, when I as out, it was very nerve wracking trying to figure out when “Santa” was coming, so I could get my goods that I had paid for, before some thief could get there first.

Unfortunately, none of the companies seem to have firm policies in place, of when or,when they don’t have to ring the doorbell etc. Fed Ex delivered a package supposedly, one very rainy day last December. I was in the house all day and all of a sudden a text came through that an expected packaged had been delivered within the hour. If given a chance, I always put in delivery instructions on my tracking requests. It didn’t matter, no one ever reads those things anyway. I called Fed Ex and they did an investigation (what a joke). Two days later, my spouse noticed a cardboard box peeking from the corner of our side garage door, from our kitchen window. It was pouring rain outside and I went out to check it out.Sure enough, It was the box that Fed Ex said they delivered, but why they went behind my side gate and left it in the backyard, I will never know. Okay, so it wasn’t in plain sight, just in the pouring rain!! Fed Ex kept sending me emails, that they were still looking for it, but of course, they never did, because the idiot driver didn’t log the location where he left it! I wasn’t about to tell them what THEY did! The vendor I bought from called me and I did tell them, as it wasn’t there doing.
I had one other delivery where a portion of the order was delivered and the box had been opened. I believe UPS rang the bell, but were long gone, by the time I opened the door. I put in a claim with them and finally got the rest of my order two or the weeks later. UPS claimed the driver had left it at a neighbors house, but I know that was a big lie, as I know my neighbors would not keep, what’s not theirs or at least what would have a neighbor’s name and address. So, these delivery companies are the ones who need to step up there delivery practices. Okay, charge more for a handwritten signature or if they have to leave a door tag and come back, but they need to give the customers some choices!
It’s a good idea to buy at least one camera. They are inexpensive or easy to hook up and view from your mobile device. This guy had at least two cameras and was able to help catch this dirtbag, in addition to grabbing the handbag! Cameras don’t guarantee anything, but they’ll help catch these thieves.

One recommendation, put a note in your mailbox asking your postman to ring the bell, when a larger package is being delivered. I did and they were happy to do it. Postal clerks are becoming extinct, so I would think many would be happy to go the extra mile to do a great job and get public support. Our postman is great and we know when he’s on vacation, because our mail may not come until 7 p.m.

Way to go neighbor on Denkinger!

Duchess of Martinez September 27, 2015 at 11:49 PM

Wow……now USPS? Last year there were private folks driving their own cars and delivering, I liked that better.

Seems everyone is more educated on what’s really going on with deliveries, more so than the USPS. Don’t think they all know about the vagueness of some delivery dates.
Was also suggested by out of touch clerks to leave a note out one time to not leave on doorstep if not there. So basically you are almost leaving a note saying you are not home. Don’t recommend

If you read this, I just want to say I am so happy you got your package back AND grabbed her purse! He was such a pig and a coward to boot, dropping the package like he did. Sorry these scummy people are in your neighborhood.

Hogermite September 28, 2015 at 10:27 AM

Per Vinelink (Google “CA Vine”) that will give you the status of anyone incarcerated in California, 30-year old Daniel David Price was just released from the Shasta Sheriff’s office on his “Own Recognizance” on 09/24. Did not take him too long to get back to re-offending, did it? Hmpff.

@Calendar Girl #119 — They travel through EVERY neighborhood … My area can be kind of confusing for an apprentice.

Fed up September 28, 2015 at 11:44 AM

Damn not him again. I seen on the news this morning they have him in custody.
I knew this guy way back and this is a sad case of what drugs can do to a good person. He was a stand up hard working guy that was raised by a good family. He never got in trouble and always worked hard. He literally changed overnight when he started using dope. I don’t even recognize him anymore.

I hope they lock him up longer this time. I wish he would get some time, get sober and change but it’s not going to happen. He’s been doing dope for almost 20 years or so. He is not going to change. He is a tweaker for life and it’s really f ed up what he’s doing to people. I hope karma kicks his ass.

WC resident September 28, 2015 at 3:27 PM

Was the homeowner arrested and charged with strong-arm robbery of the purse?

I’m unable to find a news report that Daniel Price or Dan Price has been arrested. @Hogermite, the Daniel David Price you found seems too young and looks different. That guy is age 30 and has a thinner face. See

FedEx drivers are independent contractors. They get paid based on getting 100% of their load delivered by the end of the day. There’s a strong motivation to not spend time doing things like ringing doorbells.

UPS and USPS drivers generally do ring as they won’t get penalized for not meeting their quota. USPS also looks at the cost of the last mile and will deliver packages to a local post office and pay the USPS to do the last mile if it’s cheaper for UPS.

Lana September 28, 2015 at 5:21 PM

Did they ever figure out who the passenger was? It doesn’t look like it was a girl from one of the video’s – looks more like a guy with a girls purse.

Anon September 28, 2015 at 8:25 PM

We lived by him. He is a meth head. No compassion given. He lives at home with his mama. That was his moma”s car. He lives on Crystal Avenue. Too bad meth has ever entered into the human race.

The texan September 28, 2015 at 9:52 PM

Anon, your 100 % right, i know his mom and step dad got divorced afew years ago and he came to my house selling his step dads stuff! He should have no mercy , as he brought our neighborhood down!

This is the same guy that stole a package out of our mailbox a few weeks back. Then he was driving a late model Jeep.

jeff September 29, 2015 at 11:52 PM

Anon, if you know this guy, please pass his name and address along to CPD and ask if they’ll follow up insofar as they are investigating the Denkinger Rd. theft. Together, we can get people like him off the street.

trent September 30, 2015 at 1:04 PM

Bird Lover, looks Norwegian to me

ConcordMike, prop 47 does not add to the problem if there are no resources to prosecute the same crimes. If there are no prosecution resources, it doesn’t matter how the crimes are classified. The solution is to prosecute low-level crimes, not to reclassify low-level crimes as felonies.

too bad this stuff is what Concord gets on the news for.

stay classy Concord.

Nuts September 30, 2015 at 6:21 PM

That thief must have hawk vision. The package was smaller than a lunch box, and he dropped it while running away.

Nuts September 30, 2015 at 6:28 PM

What I don’t understand is, this guy is already home with his family. And he has like 4 cameras pointing at his front door.

Are you too lazy to check your door for packages? Does someone have to steal something to get your attention?

The texan September 30, 2015 at 7:43 PM

This guy is home already?

Linda September 30, 2015 at 8:49 PM

I know you don’t want to broadcast the address, but can you tell me the general area? I hope its not where I live.
