LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

The Lee County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help identifying a man caught on a resident's surveillance camera.

A homeowner on Winifred Road said his video surveillance system captured his Christmas presents being snatched off his front porch just before 5:30 Thursday afternoon. He reported it to the sheriff's office.  

In the video, you can see the suspect ringing the doorbell. When no one answers, he grabs the two packages and takes off running.

With the holidays coming, these kinds of crimes are on the increase. 

Anyone who may recognize the suspect is asked to call the Lee County Sheriff's Office at (229) 759-6012 or CrimeSTOPPERS at (229) 436-TIPS.
