SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A thief targeting packages left on Point Loma porches has neighbors worried that he's stalking their deliveries around town. 

Surveillance video from the wooded area in Point Loma shows a man quickly walk up, snatch a package, walk back to a car, get in, and speed away. 

Several people in the area say they've been hit too.

The man who captured the video didn't want to be identified - but said he turned everything over to police - and he hopes they can stop the cycle. 
"My package wasn’t worth that much but you know maybe next time it will be or someone else or someone else that might get one snagged that’s worth more too," he said. "So I kind of feel like it’s my duty in the neighborhood to do something.”
