Aug. 24 (UPI) -- A Connecticut homeowner who reviewed security camera footage to find out what happened to her missing Amazon package was shocked to see the thief was a black bear.

Kristin Levine, of Bristol, posted a video to Facebook showing the bear taking the package from her front step and walking down her driveway with the pilfered parcel.


"Amazon had dropped off the packages maybe five minutes before, and I got the alert on my security camera, and then I got a second alert five minutes later. I was taken aback because I wasn't expecting anyone else in my driveway," Levine told NBC Connecticut.

Levine said she doesn't know why the bear was interested in the package, as all it contained was a roll of toilet paper.

"It was hysterical, like I said. I knew nothing in there was going to be irreplaceable so it was a fun afternoon, for sure," Levine said.

She said the package later turned up in a neighbor's yard.
