POLK COUNTY, Fla. —

Deputies said an Amazon delivery driver was caught stealing the package he just delivered.

On Thursday, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd accused Amazon of not helping track the driver down.

According to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, on Dec. 19, a surveillance camera captured an Amazon delivery man committing a crime.

Jose Campos, 27, of Kissimmee, is charged with burglary and theft after deputies said he delivered a package to a home in Davenport, snapped a photo to be sent to the homeowner and then took the package.

“My first reaction was, although what he took from us wasn’t very big, chances are he was doing it in other places,” Michael Pagano said. Michael and Gail Pagano said the package contained $20 worth of soap but they wanted the driver held accountable, so they called Amazon.

They claim other than getting a refund, they didn’t get much of a response.

“(We) really didn’t want to call the sheriff, thought Amazon would do the right thing, but nobody ever called back, so I was like, ‘That’s it, let’s call the sheriff,'” Michael Pagano said.

The Sheriff’s Office investigated, and thanks to the video and information from the neighborhood security guard, Campos was identified and arrested. Detectives said when they reached out to Amazon to confirm the information, they were told that would require a subpoena.

That angered Judd, who said in a news release, “They knew who committed this crime … and they would not tell us without us serving legal process (to their corporate headquarters in Delaware). This is (just) irresponsible on their part.”

The Paganos want to know what Amazon is doing about the incident. “I got people coming on my front porch. Can I trust them? And that’s the part that’s troubling
