Shocking moment Amazon delivery driver 'steals an £85 jacket from a customer's washing line'

This is the moment an Amazon delivery driver steals a jacket from a customer's clothes line.
CCTV footage shows the man letting himself into Arran Ferguson's garden in Newtongrange, Midlothian last Sunday and un-pegging the jacket from the line.
He looks around to make sure he isn't caught and then makes off with the £85 designer coat.
Mr Ferguson reported the theft to the delivery giant who managed to trace the jacket, which belongs to his sister, by demanding it from the driver.
They say they are taking the incident 'seriously', with Mr Ferguson claiming he was told the driver was sacked. 
He posted his surveillance footage on October 28, writing: 'Anyone that got a delivery from Amazon today go and check your washing lines, this dirty scumbag has just helped himself. Fuming isn't the word'.
His father Kenny later posted: 'Hi folks, just to let you all know that the washing thief has admitted to stealing my daughter's jacket and has been sacked'.
The video shows the delivery driver walking in the garden through a brown open gate as washing can be seen drying on the line in the wind.
The dark haired driver then looks both left and right to check the coast is clear before stopping in front of the line.  
He takes the jacket and casually walks out of the garden so as not to draw attention to himself leaving the brown gate open as he found it.
Mr Ferguson's Facebook friends called for him to be sacked after watching the clip. 
Phil Cunningham said: 'That's unbelievable. Well as well as losing his job I hope the police and the courts sort him out.  Imagine if he was using the entry system that Amazon want to introduce'.
Suzanne Walkingshaw added: 'Wow! Little snow dropping rat oh well I would have his job for sure!'.
Fiona Milton wrote: 'Oh my god that's shocking hop this scumbag gets caught'.
Pat Carroll simply said: 'Hope he is sacked'.
After learning of his sacking many people were glad to hear of some justice being served.
James Orr wrote: 'Good mate justice at last', while Wendy Osborne posted: 'Good to hear'.
An Amazon spokesman said: 'We have very high standards for our delivery service providers and how they serve customers. 
'We have taken this incident seriously and have reached out to the customer to ensure the matter is resolved to their satisfaction.'
