Our neighbor Maple Leaf reports that package thefts from porches continues as a frequent crime.
The Maple Leaf Life blog has received yet another report of package theft from porches. It would seem that thieves simply follow the delivery trucks and although the theft was recorded by a home surveillance camera, it is still difficult to apprehend the thieves.
Precautions should be taken for home deliveries, that someone will be at your house to receive it, or have it delivered to a neighbor. Otherwise it no longer seems realistic to expect that a package will still be on your porch by the time that you return home. Other delivery options might be considered, such as having packages sent to your workplace or to an Amazon Locker.
