Shawano County Sheriff Captain Tom Tuma warned cautioned people about package thefts from your property. With so many packages being delivered around the holidays, Tuma says criminals are looking to take advantage.
“They’re just cruising neighborhoods, and if you’re leaving a package unattended on your front porch, and maybe don’t know when it’s gonna be dropped off, it can be gone.” Tuma said. “And next thing you’ll know, you check online and see it’s delivered but where’s your box.”
Tuma says to pinpoint a time range for that delivery and get it inside as soon as possible. According to consumer affairs, more than 30 million packages are stolen from people’s property in the united states each year.
