Thief Fails to Steal Package from a House, as Nanny Takes Drastic Action [VIDEO]

Things got a little out of hand in Everett, Washington, as reports of a theft-gone-wrong emerged.

On Tuesday, nanny Kate Anderson was keeping an eye on 1-year-old Desmond, in his parents’ Smiths’ Snohomish County home.

According to video footage, there was an Amazon package delivered to the house at about 10:45 a.m.

As per Anderson, this is the first encounter she had with the woman, who came to the front porch wearing stilettos.

The nanny felt something was ‘off’ and decided to do act upon it. She even spotted the woman trying to steal a package from the house’s front yard.

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

In the video, we can see Anderson going after the woman, who noticed she was spotted and retrieved to her car.

As she was making a run for it, the thief tripped and fell on the sidewalk close to her car.

Anderson had the perfect opportunity to confront the woman, which she did without any hesitation.

“Kate eventually half-tackles, half pulls the woman to the ground,” KIRO reported.

“Call the police,” Anderson shouted to a bystander. “She just stole something from my house!”

The woman struggled to get away but to no avail.

“I didn’t do anything!” the suspect told the nanny, who still had a hold of her.

The accused, Schindler, was known to the police for already having warrants for drug possession and theft. Moreover, she had been arrested over 20 times since 2010.

Even though no one was hurt in the drama, Anderson later explained the whole occurrence “was intense.”

Anderson responded to the question if she’d be willing to do this all over again, replying, “I think I would.”

“I didn’t ever feel like she was a threat to me,” Anderson said. “So I think I would’ve handled it the same way, yes, because it’s just not OK to go around doing that. It’s so not OK with me.”

The Smith family was beyond grateful to the nanny for taking such good care of not only their son but their property as well.

“She’s just like a straight baller. She’s amazing and doesn’t take any crap from anybody,” the mother, Tanya Smith, said. “It’s pretty amazing what she did, I’m very proud of her, and I’m not surprised.”

The package the theft tried stealing had items for the baby.

“The sheriff’s office says though it doesn’t condone what Kate did,” KIRO reported, “it wants her to know — they are hiring.”

It is in moments like these that we realize where out priorities stand. Not that is too smart to respond to a situation on your own, but this woman seemed to know exactly what she was doing.

Last week, reports indicated Stefan Halper, a Cambridge professor and longtime aide to some of Washington’s most powerful figures, was outed as an FBI informant planted inside Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The New York Post writes: Halper made his first overture when he met with Page at a British symposium. The two remained in regular contact for more than a year, meeting at Halper’s Virginia farm and in Washington, DC, as well as exchanging emails. The professor met with Trump campaign co-chair Sam Clovis in late August, offering his services as a foreign-policy adviser, The Washington Post reported Friday, without naming the academic. … Days later, Halper contacted Papadopoulos by e-mail. The professor offered the young and inexperienced campaign aide $3,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to London, ostensibly to write a paper about energy in the eastern Mediterranean region. Here are a few fast facts about Halper’s history in politics. Got His Start in Nixon/Ford Years The Stanford and Oxford-educated Halper started his career in government in 1971 as a member of President Richard Nixon’s Domestic Policy Council. The foreign policy expert served as the Office of Management and Budget’s Assistant Director of Management and Evaluation Division between 1973-1974. Halper then served as an assistant to all three of President Gerald Ford’s Chief of Staffs — Alexander Haig, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney — until 1977. Accused of Leading a Spy Ring Inside Jimmy Carter’s Presidential Campaign The Reagan-Bush presidential campaign hired Halper to serve as Director of Policy Coordination in 1980 and would later be embroiled in the Debategate affair, a scandal in which CIA operatives were accused of leaking the Carter campaign’s foreign policy positions to the Republican ticket. The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald reports: Four decades ago, Halper was responsible for a long-forgotten spying scandal involving the 1980 election, in which the Reagan campaign – using CIA officials managed by Halper, reportedly under the direction of former CIA Director and then-Vice-Presidential candidate George H.W. Bush – got caught running a spying operation from inside the Carter administration. The plot involved CIA operatives passing classified information about Carter’s foreign policy to Reagan campaign officials in order to ensure the Reagan campaign knew of any foreign policy decisions that Carter was considering. Halper also worked as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs during President Ronald Reagan’s first term. Had a Stint as a Bank Executive In 1984, Halper was chairman of three financial institutions — National Bank of Northern Virginia, Palmer National Bank, and George Washington National Bank. White House official Oliver North wired loaned funds from the Palmer National Bank to a Swiss bank account, which were later used to aid the contras. Believed Hillary Clinton Would Be a Better Steward for U.S.-UK Relations In March 2016, Halper told Russia’s Sputnik News that he believed then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton would prove to be a steadier hand in preserving the “special relationship” enjoyed by the United States and Britain. “I believe Clinton would be best for US-UK relations and for relations with the European Union. Clinton is well-known, deeply experienced and predictable. US-UK relations will remain steady regardless of the winner although Clinton will be less disruptive over time,” Halper said.
