Texas thief takes off with skeleton ziptied to rocking chair
The Texan homeowner said the skeleton and rocking chair cost him $250
A Texas thief took off with a skeleton and a rocking chair from a home's front porch — and the entire brazen incident was caught on camera.
Footage from a Ring doorbell camera captured a man driving up to the victim's Austin home in a black truck on Thursday at about 6:00 p.m.
The owner told FOX 7 Austin that he ziptied the skeleton to the rocker, hoping to deter thieves, but the thief just decided to take off with both items.
The thief is seen loading the gangly ghoulish decoration in to the back of a black truck with a waiting accomplice inside.

This is not the first skeleton-stealing incident to hit the Austin area.
Earlier this week, a neighbor's Ring camera caught another thief stealing a 14-foot skeleton decoration in broad daylight.
The footage shows a woman pulling up in a white SUV and leisurely taking apart the decoration. The individual later shoves the dismembered skeleton into her vehicle and drives away.
