VIDEO: Amazon Refuses To Help Police After Their Driver Is Caught Stealing

Amazon driver Jose Campos has been arrested for burglary and theft, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

Davenport, FL – Amazon officials refused to help law enforcement officers after one of their drivers was caught stealing a package from a customer, according to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd (video below).

"I’m not surprised by much anymore, but this lack of cooperation from Amazon floors me,” Sheriff Judd said in a Facebook post on Thursday. “This is just irresponsible on their part.”

The Dec. 19 incident was captured by a Davenport resident’s security camera.

The video showed the Amazon driver as he brought the package to the customer’s door, set it down, and snapped a delivery confirmation photo.

He then snatched the package off of the front porch and left.

Polk County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) investigators contacted the Amazon logistics center, but were immediately met with resistance.

“You need a subpoena,” several managers declared, according to detectives.

The company’s loss prevention manager agreed.

“All we needed was a name—they knew who committed this crime in Polk County, and they would not tell us without us serving legal process to their corporate headquarters in Delaware,” Sheriff Judd said in the post.

Undeterred, the detectives turned to the community security team and the homeowner to identify and apprehend the Amazon driver without the company’s help.

“The homeowner provided the video which recorded the theft and security at Watersong Resort provided the tag of the Amazon driver’s vehicle,” the sheriff said. “Detectives ran the tag and it came back to [the suspect’s] girlfriend in Kissimmee.”

The woman told investigators that her boyfriend, 27-year-old Jose Campos, uses her car to deliver the Amazon packages.

Campos allegedly admitted that he was the person in the video, and was subsequently arrested on charges of theft and burglary, according to the sheriff’s office.

Amazon has not responded to WTSP’s requests for comment.

“They apparently don’t care about the ongoing safe and secure delivery of their packages to their customers and exposing other customers to burglary and theft,” Sheriff Judd said in the post. “It is impossible to believe this was this guy’s only theft.”

That's fine. Any idea how rich Amazon is? There will be an attorney ready to sue them for obstruction of justice. All this needs is to go viral and they are dead. on the other hand, Christmas is over and people have short memories.

I’m not defending Amazon but wouldn’t Amazon have erred by giving up the drivers name without a subpoena, wouldn’t that action compromise due process and get the case kicked due to a civil rights violation. By refusing, Amazon May have helped the case and its prosecution. Driver needs to be in jail and serve their time and not get released based on basic information gathering procedures.

Our security system has caught their drivers drop a package and then the driver looks closely at the door and lock. We complained. Not even a response. If one of these thugs comes thru that door, the PD is not going to need Amazon's help to I.D. him.

Isn't it wonderful that high def 4K night vision capable security cameras have become far more prevalent today on many people's homes? Catching these thieving ass hats...

On second thought Amazon may have a standing order in place to require a subpoena. Such a large and swift operation could be hamstrung with numerous complaints of missing packages, stolen by persons other than the driver. I think they should have gotten that subpoena and used it to force Amazon's hand. With such obvious proof of the crime, the subpoena should have been easy to get. That said, Amazon had better pray the guy has a clean record.

I could see if the S.O. was asking for the guys personnel file or something, but a name? Really? Along those same lines, I had one of the big cell phone companies refuse to give me the (billing) address of domestic violence perp where all I had was the cell phone number. Sent a subpoena and it languished in 'legal' for more than a week. Called, they told me there was going to be a further delay.. I explained that since sending the subpoena he had threatened his ex wife and her co-workers, and should work place violence break out, they better be ready for the media $h!t storm that would hit for them delaying the info. I had the info ten minutes later.

Only a democrat polition would have been able to get the info without a subpoena. Just like the phone records of rebulicans close to Pres. Trump. Only in life threatening circumstances supposedly.
