SALINAS, Calif - It's something that can happen to any online shopper.

But when this California woman's package went missing, her home security camera exposed the thief in more ways than one. Yep, it even got his butt crack.

It all started when Cherish Clinton received a notice on Friday about her package being delivered. And when she went home, nothing was there.

"Then I thought wait a minute, I have those cameras so I looked at the camera, I could see the postman deliver it," Clinton said.

And then 30 minutes later, a man showed up and swiped the package of dog food right off her porch.

But he forgot to keep his pants up.

She said, "I saw him bend over, I thought it was kind of funny. He was baring his rear end."

And while porch package bandits are becoming a problem, Salinas police say more homeowners are installing surveillance cameras. Helping cops catch thieves even faster.

Hey, while the thief hasn't been caught just yet, this video could be just what cops need to crack this case.
