VIDEO UPS driver steals iPad delivered by FedEx driver


Tis the season for random viral video thefts and so it was for Mr. Al Alverson from deep in the heart of Texas.

Al had come home expecting the delivery of an iPad mini he had purchased as a Christmas gift for his daughter. When he discovered it was not there, he went to his surveillance footage and got a shock when he discovered why. It turns out that a UPS delivery dude who had brought a separate package had stolen the iPad mini that was delivered by a FedEx delivery dude earlier in the day. This IS NOT logistics my friends.

Alverson got on the horn to get some UPS justice but got the serious holiday runaround. He then decided to do a little YouTube vigilante justice and posted the above clip of the crime! Wouldn’t you know, shortly after the footage got noticed and started making the rounds UPS was all about helping out.

UPS stated that the driver in question was a seasonal hire and he was terminated immediately and subsequently charged with theft. In the spirit of forgiving, Al decided not to press charges once he received what was rightfully his.

Tip of the hat to Al for being giving to his daughter and forgiving to the driver who tried to take away some of her holiday joy.

    I have had packages go missing too! I hope somebody out their is enjoying my teal mini skirt that got stolen! I wonder how many times a year this happens…i bet quite a bit. Stealing makes you a sleazy human being DONT STEAL people!

    • ohhhhno

      You need to call the company you bought the item from or the carrier and have them start a shipping dispute!

    A least in the USA you can do something about it and maybe get lucky and get you package back. In thrid world countries that is what all the post people do. My grandma only got gifts becacuse she knew someone that worked at the post office. Otherwise your screwed be thankful that we get most of our packages.

    Not excusing the thief at all but if I’m expecting packages, especially ones I have to sign for, I make sure to be home. Where was Mr Alverson?

      Maybe he was at work and Mrs Alverson planned on being home but rushed their 2 year old to the emergency room for a cut on his head when he fell? Who knows? It’s not a requirement that somebody be home. It IS a requirement that delivery employees not STEAL.

    This is exactly why I get my packages shipped to my work…. people are gutless. Stealing packages during the Christmas season.. can you say pathetic?
