Thief steals family's priceless package from porch of Novi home

NOVI, Mich. – A man in Novi stole a package from a home Wednesday, and the family who was expecting it is asking that the thief return the priceless item inside.

Jennifer McGrath's great grandfather was a cartoonist. He had a few dolls of his cartoons made, and her husband was was recently able to find one on eBay.

"I've been on the hunt for probably 20 years now and finally found one on eBay. [I] thought it was cool it was coming to the house. We were seeing her family this weekend. It isn't happening now," Sean McGrath said.

Security cameras showed the package being delivered. In less than an hour, a man walked up to the house and took the package.

"It definitely makes you uncomfortable to know someone was up here taking something in the middle of the day," Jennifer McGrath said. "I had a rough time sleeping just knowing someone was here at our house."
