Package grinches don’t only come around at Christmas time. Theft of packages is on the rise in the area and all are encouraged to beware. “Please watch your home delivery packages,” shares Roosevelt City Police Department. “Thefts from porches are happening in our area.” Thieves are looking for packages just sitting on the front porch or out in the open. They will look for an opportunity to take them and promptly leave the area. There are a few ways to prevent being a victim. Roosevelt Police suggests having packages delivered to a work address or to another attended address. Having a parcel lock box is another possible solution. Regardless, it is important to avoid having packages sitting out in the open for any length of time.
