The images surprised Kristin Casey, who was not at home at the time. In the video, it is possible to see a man, dressed in red shorts, white shirt and cap, placing the package on the door of the property. He looks at his cell phone and heads towards the bike, which is Casey’s 11-year-old daughter. Then, the surrender goes pedaling.

International media promptly echoed the episode, which is not the first controversial case involving Amazon’s delivery. In one of the most recent, which took place in June this year, a man received a pot of urine when opening a box that was supposed to contain a bathroom curtain.
The CBS Miami website interviewed the owner of the house. In the report, Casey said she was «furious» and «shocked» to follow the whole action. But, for her, everything may have been a misunderstanding, since the bicycle was next to the wastebaskets. Therefore, Casey believes that the delivery man concluded that the object would be discarded and ended up picking it up without bad intentions.
«I think that at heart everyone is good at heart. And I believe he is a person with a great heart, who made a big mistake,» he told CBS Miami.
According to the publication, police said the delivery man had agreed to return the item. However, according to Business Insider, a spokesman for Amazon in the United States said he had already been dismissed from the company.
«We have high standards for our delivery partners and how they serve customers. We are committed to law enforcement and the customer to ensure that this situation is fully resolved and we apologize to the customer for this experience. This individual is no longer delivering Amazon packages. »
