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

A pair of thieves in Washington State got more than they bargained for and now the video has gone viral.

One thief was caught on camera in Everett as a nanny rushed out and tackled a thief that 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.
