Welcome to This Week in Package Theft. Each week, we’ll feature 2-3 package theft videos from around the web and bring you rants, raves, tips, tricks, advice and a place to share ideas on how help stop package theft. We are seeing an increase in package theft, so if we can help expose the people doing this and ideas on how to stop them, we think that is a good thing. Come join us at TWIPT.
We start this series with a porch pirate on a bike. He’s got no shame. He takes the package and rides off with it in plain site. You’d think this would be a case easily solved, but at the time of publishing, the thief was still on the loose!
Here’s a video of a dumb package thief that’s interesting. First of all, there are cameras that are clearly visible and the thief didn’t do anything to disguise himself. The item he stole was a fireplace bellows. Police caught up with him later. The dude is a juvenile, so he’s going to to get charged with a possible felony because of a fireplace bellows. It’s sad, really and totally not worth it!
Watch those Amazon deliveries, people! Both of these package thieves stole Amazon packages.
