Porch Thefts Increase During Holiday Season

This holiday season there will be some 1 billion packages delivered and not all of them will make it to their owners. According to the United States Postal Service more than 2000 mail thefts were reported last year.

UPS says package theft is extremely rare, but hidden camera video investigations online seem to disagree with that statement. Police reports in some locations are reporting that in some cases people are actually following delivery trucks around town and searching out locations where packages have been left on porches since the owners were not home.

If you are expecting a package, you might want to alert a neighbor who might be home during the delivery day to keep an eye out for the package for you until you can get home from work or school.

Thieves don’t care if it is a holiday season or not. They see money in those packages and will do what it takes to get it.
