    Carly Mullady Cowan, the woman who lives at the home, told FOX13 she and her husband were out when the suspect stole the packages from their porch. 

    “Some guy just drove all the way up, grabbed the stuff off of our porch, and tossed it in the backseat of his car – and then backed right out,” Cowan said. 

    Cowan said the whole thing happened in less than 30 seconds. 

    “It just feels like a waste. And you lose that sense of security,” Cowan said. 

    Among the items stolen were a Nivea toiletry set, Kleenex wet wipes, a book, two packs of cigars, and a nightgown. 

    Police said the suspect’s vehicle may have a Texas license plate. 

    No witnesses were located, and no additional information is available.
