KANSAS CITY, MO. – At home, a pirate was detained on the porch who stole a 50-pound inflatable hot tub from a woman’s porch in Kansas City in broad daylight.
Denise Gregory is a trained nurse and sales representative. She was busy in this pandemic.
To relax and have a recent partial knee replacement surgery, her husband Joe ordered her an inflatable hot tub.
“I was so excited to get this and you know we waited a long time because it isn’t cheap,” said Gregory.
It was $ 547 to be exact.
Sunday the couple received a notification that it had been delivered, but the hot tub was nowhere to be found.
“My husband woke up thinking that someone was out here to deliver it and it was actually her who took it out of the package and rolled it across the street to her van,” said Gregory.
Porch pirates are usually quick in and out, but the video shows the woman struggling to get the box moving in the first place. She is seen pushing, pulling and pulling it towards her van.
“It’s so frustrating because we’re constantly using Amazon to get shipments,” said Gregory. An earlier video seems to show the same van driving by and the hot tub box is still there.
Gregory said Amazon was replacing the hot tub for free, but that’s not the point.
“She’s a thief and I want her to know that’s unacceptable,” said Gregory. “She has to be responsible for what she did.”
