Surveillance cameras captured a woman stealing a box of medications from the front porch of a home on Detroit's west side.

It happened Friday afternoon on the 9500 block of Hartwell Street in Detroit.

The video shows a mini-van circling around the neighborhood before pulling into the home's driveway.

That's when a woman gets out of the passenger seat without shoes, grabs a box from the front porch and runs back into the car.

Erma Lusier said she was surprised to see someone steal her sleeping and cholesterol medications.

"That's low down and dirty for them to do that," Lusier said. "I just don't know how they have the nerve to come on someone's private property."

Her family posted the video on social media hoping someone will recognize the woman and come forward.

If you have any information, please call Detroit police.
