A Jacksonville family said their package was snatched off their doorstep by a child in broad daylight.
On Thursday afternoon, Brittany Davis said her surveillance camera captured a boy walk up to her porch, pick up the package and shove it in his pants before walking off.

“Anytime anything happens at your house you feel violated. That's my home,” Davis said.
The suspect was wearing a blue shirt, pants and a backpack.
According to the police report, the package contained a St. Jude special edition frisbee worth $10.

Davis said it’s not necessarily about what was inside the package, it’s the principle.
“I never even thought about a package being stolen off my porch more or less from a child,” Davis said.
She said police have yet to positively identify the boy in the video.
Davis said she doesn't want the kid to get in serious trouble, but hopes this teaches him a lesson.
“If it's a first time it'll probably be a slap on the wrist and we are totally fine with that,” Davis said. “Maybe this will be a turning point for him," she said.
