A Colorado woman went on an unexpected run days before Christmas to chase down a woman who stole a package off of her porch.

The theft was caught on camera, and so was the chase.

Renee Abeyta was at her Lakewood home doing chores Wednesday afternoon.

"I got a notification on my phone saying there's someone at the front door." Abeyta said.

You can see from the different cameras in her home a woman grabs a package from her front porch, but by the time Abeyta checked it out, the woman was gone.

"I looked at my ring videos and i saw what happened." Abeyta said.

Abeyta went back outside and saw the suspect crossing the street trying to get away.

"I thought no way this is happening to me." Abeyta said.

You can see Abeyta confronting the woman in the video.

"What's your name? What's your name? Did you steal something? give it!" Abeyta said in the video.

"I don't even know what came out of my mouth or even why I said what I did," Abeyta said. "It just happened."

Abeyta kept chasing the woman down for about a minute before finally she getting her to stop.

"Hopefully that girl and other people don't steal stuff," Abeyta said. "Because it's Christmas and I mean these are presents for people."
