WEST ISLIP - Surveillance cameras caught a thief stealing a Christmas package from a mailbox at a West Islip home.

The homeowner, David Young, hopes that using social media will help bring the thief to justice.

The video shows a woman driving up onto Young's driveway and swiping a Christmas gift for Young's 12-year-old son, Josh.

Young posted the surveillance video on YouTube and Facebook hoping someone will recognize her face.

The YouTube videos have gotten nearly 1,000 hits since he posted it Monday.
