Sometimes karma really is a killer.
A thief got his comeuppance after stealing a parcel from the front porch of a house in Concord, California.
In the video the man can be seen running from a white coloured car and nabbing the parcel from the porch.
He then sprints back in the direction of his vehicle.
However the homeowner wasn't prepared to relinquish the item without a fight and caused the thief to drop the parcel in fright.
The plucky man then threw himself through the window of the thief's car and stole a large bag before the car drove away.
"This happened at 4:12pm on Friday 25th September.
"These people have no fear, three cars in the driveway and the female in the passenger seat even made eye contact with our grown daughter.
"My daughter said someone is running up to the house, I ran out and realised he was stealing something and chased him to the car," the homeowner told Metro.co.uk.
"I reached in to the window and tried to stop them, he didn’t care that I had her arm and when he started to drive off, I saw her purse and grabbed it with hopes there was ID and turned it in to the police," he said.
What comes around goes around!
