Package Thief's Get-Away Did Not Go Smoothly, And 'Rambo Nanny' Was Ready To Pounce

'Tis the season for shopping, and many of us do our shopping online these days instead of in crowded malls. Because of this, 'tis also the season for package thieves to be on the lookout for deliveries left on doorsteps.

One childcare worker spotted a package thief trying to get away, so the nanny sprang into action.

Kate Anderson works for the Smith family in Everett, Washington taking care of their young children. On November 29, employer and friend, Tanya Smith, asked Anderson to be on the lookout for a package delivery.

Anderson was busy tending to the children when she noticed the delivery man left the package on the front porch.

A few minutes later, a car pulled up and a woman got out. The woman approached the home, not realizing she was being watched by Anderson.

"I saw her bending and picking it up, and they get a lot of packages. And I knew. I was like, 'Oh my gosh, she's taking that,' so I just took off after her, to be honest," Anderson said.

The family's home surveillance cameras caught the scene. The thief tried to make a quick get-away by running back to the passenger side of the car.

She managed to throw in the package, but before she could get in the door, her partner in crime pulled away and drove off. The thief fell on the ground and was left behind.

Anderson is then seen entering the scene as she hurried over to the thief. "Hey what the f**k are you doing? Hey you piece of s--t what are you trying to steal?" she yelled.

The thief saw Anderson and tried to get up and run, but she was too shaken from the fall out of a moving car. Anderson tackled her and restrained her while someone called the police.

Authorities arrived and arrested the thief, who was identified as Rhieanna Schindler. The 29-year-old had outstanding warrants for drug possession and theft. She'd been arrested more than 20 times in the last seven years.

Ms. Smith was thrilled by Anderson's brave actions. "She's just like a straight baller, she's amazing and doesn't take any crap from anybody," Smith said. "It's pretty amazing what she did, I'm very proud of her, and I'm not surprised."

Smith started a GoFundMe campaign to raise reward money for Anderson. She was hoping to raise $200, but so far has gotten more than $1,000 in donations.

The Smiths already gave their super nanny a reward, but they were hoping to increase it with other citizens impressed with the woman’s bravery.

The Snohomish County police in Washington don’t want citizens doing what Anderson did. They prefer people let the packages go rather than put themselves in danger, and urge people to call authorities to report package thieves.

However, they think Smith might want to reconsider her career. She might be better suited for a position in law enforcement.
