Someone didn't get the memo about a new Texas law in effect making package theft a state jail felony.

Temple police are on the hunt for a person caught on surveillance footage stealing packages from the porch of a home.

Cody Weems with the Temple Police Department reports that the theft occurred in the 100 block of Lago Verde Lane between 4 PM and 6 PM Friday, September 6.

The suspect appears to be a white woman, but it's tough to give a better description because the image quality isn't the best. Police say she stole around $250 worth of packages, then fled the scene in a silver sedan.

If by some miracle you can recognize the suspect or her vehicle from these images, or if you know anything that might help detectives find this person, please contact the Temple Police Department at (254) 298-5500.

If this person is caught and convicted, a new law that went into effect September 1 means she could serve anywhere from six months to a decade in prison and face a hefty fine for porch pirating.
