    A pair of Staten Island newlyweds say they recently returned from their honeymoon to find out that some of the wedding gifts shipped to them had been stolen right off their front porch. 

    Danielle and Louis Coluccio say their home security camera captured a thief casually stealing a large package from the front of their Rosebank home, then returning minutes later with an accomplice to steal more packages.

    The boxes contained wedding china, a meat slicer and 3-D glasses to watch movies. 

    "I was shocked," said Louis Coluccio, who works as a financial adviser. 

    "You just feel violated," said Danielle Coluccio, a teacher. 

    "It's scary, living in your neighborhood, knowing somebody has the audacity in broad daylight to come on your porch and do that," she said.

    The Coluccios filed a police report and got their wedding registries to replace the items. Now they want the thieves caught. 

    "Next time maybe somebody will think twice before they do something like this," said Louis Coluccio.
