Surveillance video catches a man stealing a package on April 21, 2016 from the doorstep of a home near Coral Gables.

A man walked onto a porch at a home just outside of Coral Gables, picked up a package, looked at the label and briskly walked away.

The problem, police say, is the package wasn't his.

On Wednesday, police released home surveillance video of the incident, which happened at 4 p.m. last Thursday in the 3300 block of Southwest 17th Street, showing a clear picture of the man.

Police believe the same man could be tied to another package theft, where five pill bottles were missing.

Detectives say the man is 18-25 years old, 5-feet 7-inches to 5-feet 9-inches tall, 150-165 pounds and was last seen wearing a black shirt and black pants. He also had a full beard.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami Police Department’s Burglary Unit at 305-603-6030 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
