A BRAZEN stranger is seen apparently stealing items from a Hereford front garden.

Footage sent to the Hereford Times shows the incident that happened in New Kilvert Road, in the Newton Farm area of the city, last Wednesday (November 15). 

The homeowner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: "The man steals a parcel I had delivered hours before and our cat scarer.

"Since sharing between friends I have gathered that the criminal searched other gardens in the area, before walking up back up Kilvert Road.


"I feel it is important for people to be aware of this as it is coming up to Christmas, and lots of people will have gifts delivered to their gardens."

A West Mercia Police spokesperson said: "We received a report on November 15 at around 2pm that a parcel and a cat scaring device had been taken from the front of a property on New Kilvert Road in Hereford.

"Officers are now investigating the theft."
