Last week's Amazon Prime Day turned into a prime crime opportunity for one thief in Mesa. 

A man is seen on camera at a home near Brown and Gilbert roads picking up an Amazon box and walking away with it. 

In it, was an inflatable kayak, which was a Prime Day deal for E.J. Vandermeer. 

"I'm just going to say that I think it's fortunate for this guy that it came with a paddle, because the creek he's going up, he's going to need it," Vandermeer told ABC15. 

He's suspected of hitting at least four other houses in the neighborhood. 

He was seen driving away in a red hatchback Ford Focus. 

If you recognize him, contact police in Mesa.
