We live on S. Alkire and have lived in the neighborhood almost two years now. We have had two incidents now that packages have been stolen from our front porch that I'd like to report.
About two months ago, my husband had received a package, and he got notification from USPS that it had arrived. When we got home from work, it wasn't here. USPS swore that they left it at the correct address, so sadly, we could only assume that someone stole it from our front porch before we got home.
Yesterday, we left a package on the front porch to be picked up from UPS, around 7:15 am. When I left the house at 8:30 am, the package was gone, so I assumed UPS already picked it up. Well, UPS stopped by later that morning to pick up the package, and they don't have it in their system as getting picked up by another driver. Disappointingly enough, my husband and I wonder if this package wasn't stolen as well. We just can't imagine who would do this in our neighborhood, especially so early in the morning.
I thought that this might be something for our neighbors to keep an eye out for. I now we will be doing our best to avoid getting deliveries when no one is home, and will plan to drop packages off going forward.
Thanks for sharing,
