OAKWOOD, Ohio —

A teen told police he was “ding dong ditching” with another person when he stole two packages from a woman’s porch last week, according to an Oakwood police report.

The packages, which contained a $550 pair of shoes and over $60 in cosmetics, were taken from a front porch on Oakwood Avenue around 9:30 a.m., the report read. The teen was caught in the act on home surveillance, which was turned over to police.

Officers said the teen could either face theft charges or agree to pay the woman back for the items that were stolen. The teen agreed to pay the woman back and no charges were pursued.
