EL CAJON, Calif. (KGTV) - Residents in an El Cajon neighborhood are worried a porch pirate is targeting their mailboxes and packages. 
 
They've caught what looks like the same man on two different security videos in less than a week. He's seen pulling up in a dark-colored SUV, approaching a porch, and taking off with a package. 

He's been caught on camera taking a package from the 700 block of Waterloo Avenue and the 1800 block of Granite Hills Drive.

Marisa Harless says she was the thief's latest victim. She had a delivery swiped from her porch on Tuesday. 
 
"The package taken was a wedding gift from my fiancé's sister who lives out of state, so a little heartbroken that something that was valuable to me and our future was taken from us," Harless said. "I hope he gets what's coming him."
