Suspect stole package full of girl's birthday gifts

DALLAS, Ga — A suspect is wanted for stealing a package from the front porch of a Dallas home owner and with it he took the gifts for a 12-year-old child’s birthday.

Paulding County Sheriff Investigators are hopeful a home surveillance camera will help them identify the culprit.

“It's scary,” said Eric Truitt. Truitt’s wife Stacy and two children were home when the theft was captured on his surveillance system. “I mean it's a bold and brazen act to walk up to someone's house in the middle of the day.”

It happened at around noon Monday. A suspect wearing a black jacket, maroon pants and a unique cap took the box and ran back to a car parked in the Truitt’s driveway. The suspect is seen putting the box in the trunk and then getting in the passenger side while another suspect drove the car away.
