They've posted the video on YouTube that shows a young attractive woman simply walking up to the home with an empty box in hand. She exchanges the empty for one filled with gifts and then walks off camera to a waiting car.
Wetzel said she set up the camera after someone stole mail back in October.
Los Altos police Sgt. Scott McCrossin called the holiday heist "brazen." He told the paper doorstep thefts tend to go both unnoticed and unreported.
If you have any information about the theft call the Los Altos Police Department at 650-947-2770.
