While the driver was delivering a package to Country Oaks Apartments in the Fairbun Mays neighborhood Sunday afternoon, he left his vehicle running unattended.
According to the police report, at least four men rushed into the truck to steal several packages inside.
Video captured from a nearby home shows the thieves jumping from the front of the van and running to the back where the door was already open.
We see them get back into the Amazon vehicle and fill their arms with packages.
The video camera then panned to the driver, in the middle of his delivery trip, who abruptly stopped walking and watched as his truck was wrecked.
