Holiday Parcel Thieves Are Back. Watch This Guy Steal Packages From a Bernal Heights Home

Posted By on Fri, Nov 21, 2014 at 11:31 AM

There are plenty of ways to let your inner Grinch manifest itself this holiday season. Some choose to disapprove of Christmas music and shopping centers, while others are bugged by all the family time that goes with it.

And then there's these guys, who prefer to just steal Christmas, Dr. Seuss-style.

The Bernalwood Press tells all about a new parcel thief that struck the Bernal Heights neighborhood earlier this week, snatching packages from a doorstep in broad daylight.  Luckily the victim got some video for the world to see. Although we'd love to watch footage of his face when he opens the packages, because, as the victim notes in the blog, the contents are probably nothing that he had on his Christmas list:

Today’s loss was no big deal. In fact, I would pay money to be around when he opens the two packages containing various sets of cocktail napkins with anchors, poppies, and a classic Moroccan tile pattern. I’m sure the reaction was pure comedy as he discovered the fruits of his labors. Hopefully he’ll have a nice cocktail party. He’ll have to supply the spanakopita and the mini quiches, but the napkins are on me.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
