Home security footage captured a family Nanny from Washington state in action as she took down a package thief who stole family parcels.
Nanny Kate Anderson -who helps the Smith family in the town of Everett- was instructed to be on the lookout for an Amazon package on the 29 of November. Less than 10 minutes after the package was delivered, a car pulled up outside the family home, prompting the nanny’s suspicion that something was amiss.
In a situation caught on camera, a woman stepped out of the car and grabbed the package- right in front of Anderson.
“I saw her bending and picking it up, and they get a lot of packages. And I knew. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, she’s taking that,’ so I just took off after her, to be honest,” the nanny said.
As the woman tries to get away, Anderson can be heard pursuing her, cursing and screaming as she attempts to catch her prey.
Hey what the *beep* are you doing? Hey you *beep* piece of *beep* what are you trying to steal?” she shouted, closing distance with the thief.
The woman managed to get the box into the getaway car, but was thrown from the vehicle as it sped off with the stolen goods.
Anderson tackled the woman to the ground and ordered a passerby to call the police.
I didn’t do anything!” the suspect shouts.
“Yes you did!” Anderson said. “I *beep* saw you, you know we got security cameras on this house, don’tcha?”
Eight minutes after the call was made, Snohomish County deputies arrived, arresting 29-year-old local Rhieanna Schindler, who has been arrested over 20 times in seven years and had outstanding warrants for drug possession and theft.
While the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office did not condone the action taken by Anderson, they did want her to know that they are, in fact, hiring.
According to KIRO7, the lady of the house, Tanya Smith, expects nothing less from her nanny and friend, Kate Anderson.
“She’s just like a straight baller, she’s amazing and doesn’t take any crap from anybody,” Tanya said. “It’s pretty amazing what she did, I’m very proud of her, and I’m not surprised.”
The package was later discovered to contain items for the family infant, who slept through the entire ordeal.
