Canadian police warn residents who have been the victim of package thieves not to post surveillance footage of their packages being stolen as it would be in violation of a criminal's right to a "private life." 

Lt. Benoit Richard, a communications officer for Quebec provincial police, urged against posting images of the alleged thieves that could have been captured by door cameras.

"You cannot post the images yourself because you have to remember, in Canada, we have a presumption of innocence and posting that picture could be a violation of private life," Richard warned.
