'Porch Pirate' Steals Donated Books Off Doorstep in Utah Suburb

A thief was caught on camera stealing book donations from a front porch in Sandy, Utah, on May 31, according to a local resident.

Sandy resident Elliot Morris told Storyful that the “porch pirate” stole donations for a book club he was running in the state prison with the University of Utah Prison Education Project.

“This is the seventh book club I’m heading up out there,” Morris told Storyful. “These packages were donations from friends and family so I can’t be exactly sure what the books were,” he added. Credit: Elliot Morris via Storyful
