CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A so-called porch pirate appeared in court for allegedly stealing packages from a Miami Township home. Police arrested Daniel Stolz on Monday, saying he's the thief caught on surveillance video.

Laura Duerring posted a still shot of the thief, who she said took three packages from her porch on November 29. She said he followed the Fed Ex truck and stole the packages within minutes of delivery. One of the packages contained credit cards, according to court papers. Another package was children's toys for Christmas.

In court, assistant prosecutor David Wood outlines Stolz's past theft and drug abuse convictions saying it was probably the drugs that "fuels his need to steal".
