    SALEM (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Police are following leads after a Salem man released footage of a woman who stole a birdcage off of his porch before Christmas.

    When Bushong received the cage, he realized it wasn't the right size and left it on his porch to be picked up and returned.

    When Bushong returned from a business trip he noticed the package was gone. He said looked at footage from a security camera mounted on his porch and  realized that the package hadn't been picked up by a delivery company, instead it was taken by a woman.

    "This is her coming up, again she doesn't even flinch she just grabs the package -- all 75 pounds of it -- and walks away," said Bushong.

    Bushong says he was sharing the security footage to prevent other residents from falling victim to similar thefts.

    Salem Police were using the video to try to identify the woman. Bushong tells FOX 25 they have received tips since the video was released, but they have not made any arrests in the case.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Salem police.
