NUMEROUS REPORTS OF PACKAGE THEFT


On Monday, December 11th, the Kingman Police Department took numerous reports of packages being stolen from front doors after they had been delivered. The thefts occurred during the daytime hours. Surveillance video from one of the homes shows a white female adult, with bleached blond hair, wearing a blue hoody, with “ABC” logo on the front stealing a parcel. This suspect is reported to have gotten into the front passenger seat of an older model, white in color, Ford F-250 or F-350, 4X4, 4 doors.

 

 

Most parcel delivery companies have delivery options available wherein those expecting packages can opt out of door delivery, and choose an approved delivery and pickup location. Many companies have apps that can track, in real time, the location and expected delivery date and time. Other options that could discourage and help solve package theft would include affordable and easily installed video surveillance solutions. Preemptive posting of “video surveillance in progress” and “alarm” could serve as a deterrent. At a minimum, make every effort to not leave packages unattended for an extended period of time. Contact a friend or neighbor to retrieve the package for you. Remove the temptation and increase the likelihood of detection and apprehension.
