RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

They're wanted for stealing dozens of packages off the doorsteps of homes across the metro and Friday they were still on the run. Investigators identified the suspects as Gregory Montreal Magee and Kenya Michelle Knotts. 

They're wanted in five cities for taking packages off of doorsteps. Investigators have tied them to over twenty thefts.

Gregory Magee and Kenya Knotts, appear to portray a modern day Bonnie and Clyde on social media. They're out getting matching pedicures and talking selfies. Kenya even tried on a wedding dress. They're wanted by multiple law enforcement agencies.

Many of the crimes caught on home surveillance cameras.

"They apparently think it's a big deal, you're walking up on peoples property," said Ridgeland Police Lieutenant Brian Myers. "Everyone that has lost a package, they feel violated and we plan to cover that for them."

Ridgeland police say a homeowner there recorded a theft on a home surveillance camera  Monday.

"She walks up to the porch picks up the package and just walks back to the car," said Myers.

More than twenty thefts have been recorded. Magee and Knotts are facing multiple counts of grand larceny.

Police say protect your packages till they're taken into custody.

"I would advise a neighbor," said Myers. "if you know it has been delivered, ask a neighbor to pick it up.  If you can't, or have them hold it till you can come sign for it."
