Delivered Package Theft

As you’d expect this time of year, it’s common for thieves to swing through a neighborhood looking for packages on front porches.  Our neighborhood is no exception.  A lot of traffic passes through our neighborhood, going to or from the neighborhood behind us, or people looking to shortcut the interurban trail.  As a result, it’s important to be vigilant.

Keep your eyes out for people removing packages from doorsteps if they don’t then go into the house, and report any suspicious activity to the police by dialing 9-1-1.  If possible, take a photo of the activity, but if that’s not possible, try to give a physical description of the person, and any vehicle they may use.  In any case, do not put yourself at risk.  The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office does not recommend that you intervene.  It’s entirely possible that the thief is armed, and you shouldn’t risk your life over your neighbor’s new Kindle.
