KIRKWOOD, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A woman who was caught on camera stealing packages off of a Kirkwood couple's front porch has been arrested, police say.

It happened at a house on the 300 block of Attucks St. 

Around 3 p.m. on Wednesday, August 2, a home security camera captured a female suspect stealing three packages from the front porch steps of Sarah and Stahle Butler's home. She made off with items totaling in $60 value. The Butler's say the packages are not a big loss, but they did lose a feeling of comfort in their own home. 

"It's just the fact that you want to be able to trust your neighbors and be able to get packages without having to worry about it," said Stahle Butler. "A lot of us are getting security cameras, that's becoming standard."

"Ring" at-home security cameras allow owners the option to send out alerts to neighbors, so that is exactly what the Butler's did. They also sent out an image of the suspect on their neighborhood "NextDoor" website, giving plenty of warning for their area to be on the look out.

"It's really one of the most community-focused communities I've ever lived in," said Sarah Butler. "Everyone knows each other and seems like everyone looks out for each other, so we've been really happy here."

"If it's from the U.S. Postal Service, it could be federal charges against you and it's not worth it if you're going to get a fidget spinner and a beach towel...it's just not worth the crime to do it," said Stahle Butler.
