But now the clip has gone viral, after being hilariously edited with the 'chase' music from Benny Hill added to it.      
Pat Folger teamed up with another neighbour, a 19-year-old student at the University of Washington, who chased the suspect on foot, Kiro7 reported.
Mr Folger told the outlet: 'We chased him for like 10 minutes. We went up and down the street back and forth through people's yards.'

Another neighbour described the student as the 'hero Kenmore needed' after taking down the thief.
The suspect, 29, was arrested and all the packages were returned to their owners after neighbours called 911.   
Sgt. Ryan Abbott said of the suspect: 'He'd been involved with residential burglaries before.
'He's been convicted along with some other vehicle prowls and drug offences as well.' 
But he added that police do not recommend chasing burglars, as 'you don't know if they're armed'.
'No package is worth risking your life. You should always call 911 first' Abbot added.
