GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) – A suspect accused of swiping an Amazon package from a Greenville family’s doorstep is in custody, police confirmed Tuesday.

The theft happened on Jan. 8 along Stall Street.

A spokesman for Deep Sentinel said the victims’ security system played a role in catching the suspect.

“Deep Sentinel’s AI sprang into action, catching the suspect on camera and alerting the 24/7LiveSentinel surveillance guard, who then immediately notified police with details of the incident,” said Deep Sentinel spokesperson Donna Loughlin Michaels in a news release. “Police responded within minutes and were able to apprehend the suspect nearby. The stolen package was ultimately returned to the owner.”

Deep Sentinel posted video about the incident and the outcome on YouTube:

Shortly after an Amazon package was delivered, a man swiftly steals a package off the porch of a Deep Sentinel customer. After the AI processed the image and the anomalous activity, Guards watching the camera immediately contacted local law enforcement, then contacted the homeowner. Within an hour, the suspect was arrested and the package was returned.


Police said Lance William Couvillian was arrested after the homeowner sent a picture of the suspect from their home security system.

Couvillian was charged with petit larceny.
