SAN ANTONIO A northwest-side homeowner says he isn't mad about losing his $3 pumpkins, he's just bewildered that someone would steal anything from his children.

Surveillance cameras were rolling on Saturday outside the home in the 8600 block of North Fork Drive. Footage shows the a woman run up to the door step and snatch an orangepumpkin. Seconds later, she returns and grabs another.

It's sad, the homeowner said.

His children, 3 and 7 years old, were preparing to carve the pumpkins later that day.

Other parents at pumpkin patch at a nearby church were also shocked a woman could commit such a petty crime in the middle of the day.

I mean, it's terrible, one woman said. Why would someone steal pumpkins when they are so cheap?
