It's that time of year for holiday cheer and gifts for Christmas, but some folks are trying to be Grinches and ruin the holidays. Thieves are cruising neighborhoods looking for unattended packages on porches.

One thief in Washington State got more than they bargained for and now the video has gone viral.

The thief was caught on camera in Everett as a nanny rushed out and tackled a thief who was stealing a package off the porch.

The nanny jumped into action and detained the thief when she saw them through the porch camera.

The video is a reminder that package thieves are on the prowl, protect yourself and be aware this holiday season.
