  • "Both sound silly, in hindsight, but it's more the principal that somebody is out here and brazen enough to go up to somebody's house in broad daylight,"

    SKINNER!

  • I agree, this really makes no sense. First off, what kind of plebe orders a $4000 painting? You might as well wipe your ass with that investment. I mean, the galleries deliver anything for free over $100,000. Second, you have the steaks delivered fresh to the servants' quarters, not yours, and not by UPS, you have them airmailed overnight from the Kobe or Matsusaka region.

    This whole incident sounds preposterous.
  • I bet they were Trump steaks
  • Someone from Oklahoma, duh.
  • Surveillance video from the home near E. 15th and I-35 shows a white man get out of a metallic gray or silver BMW at around 5:00 pm Tuesday.
    "He pulled up, walks up to the porch, grabs the box -- which happened to be a painting -- and the box of steaks, put it in his car and drove off," said Edmond Police Department spokeswoman Jenny Wagnon.



    Yeah, these guys just follow the UPS guy on his route through residential neighbourhoods - or they get a call from the driver himself. Always pay for deliver with sig. Always.

  • the steaks werent even that tasty, let me tell you
  • You have to be an idiot of epic proportions.

  • DNTRFA, but responding to the headline:

    Someone who ordered them on a stolen credit card and had them delivered to an address not associated with themselves (whose residents are on vacation) from which they plan to collect said goods in the dark of night.
  • Remember when UPS or FedEx actually had to get a signature when it was requested... good times good times.
  • cretinbob: I bet they were Trump steaks


    Probably a painting of Trump too. Paid for with charity money.
  • UPS may had no directive to leave them on the front porch... I've had several deliveries from them marked "signature required" and they were still left in front of my door. The drivers are probably betting that the recipient will be happy enough not to have gone to the depot not to report it.
  • It says it was a custom painting. I hope that thief now has a $4000 painting of a strangers family. Or something like this:

    Me, drunk and eBay?
  • The thief drives a BMW X6?  Those things start at $60K.

    And the thief, who drives a BMW X6, drives into a neighborhood, into the back of a cul-de-sac, says "ooh, this house looks like it might have something really expensive on the doorstep", and goes and steals it???

    And he couldn't even close the back door, do it's not like he could get very far.  Maybe there's more to the story?
  • You'll spend $4K for a painting... and 20 bucks on a low-res security camera that can't resolve a face or a license plate?
  • I ordered a $13 TV wall mount.  I got a text from UPS stating, "sorry, no one was around to accept the package, and there was no place secure to leave it!  We left it at the local post office!"

    I live in a cabin in the woods, I have no neighbors to steal things, I'm retired and am home all day, I have a covered front porch, I lent my car to someone this week.  I sent them a sternly worded email about lying liar delivery companies who seem to think it's sufficient to deliver a package within ten miles of me and think that's sufficient.
  • they seem to have a nasty habit of not even ringing the doorbell when they leave stuff either.  they must be in too much of a hurry to get to the next delivery to ensure that it is properly delivered

    There was one time I ordered a TV.  I think it was maybe $800 or so.  It was shipped adult signature required, and I was home, but in the shower when they came so I missed them.  It was shipped in the TV box - not in a plain cardboard box or anything.  UPS stands the thing straight up in full view on my porch so anyone driving by would see a TV.  They put it behind a plant and I guess that was "hiding" it, but the box was 4' wide and the plant was tiny.
  • The thief was in a customized BMW stealing steaks from a rich housewife.

    FIRST.WORLD.PROBLEMS.

    Ted Kaczynski, is that you?
  • Take the steaks, leave the painting.
  • Someone who is scamming, that is who.

    And if you want good steaks, go to the local butcher, not order them on line.
    If you want dog food, it is cheaper and available at the local pet store.
