A DoorDash driver in New York was arrested Wednesday after police said she used the delivery of a food order to conceal the theft of a package in two separate instances.

Juliana Saggaram, 33, of Queens, is charged with two counts of petit larceny stemming from packages reported stolen on Sunday, Sept. 3, according to the Nassau County Police Department.

The department released doorbell camera footage from one of the instances, which allegedly shows Saggaram walking up to a house with a food order in her hand. 

Instead of leaving the bag of food, she can be seen taking a package off the porch and walking back to her car with both items in tow. She then enters a car parked near the driveway to the home and flees the scene.
