Deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station are out to snag holiday porch pirates in the act of stealing fake shipping boxes planted on residents’ doorsteps.
Here’s the story from the station’s social media:
“Crime Prevention Unit deputies have been placing fake packages outside residents’ homes (with their permission, of course) to help catch thieves.
“Package thefts usually increase during the holiday season. Crime Prevention Sgt. Dan Dantice said: ‘There are some people just out looking for packages to steal. We want to catch the ones that are stealing someone’s package right off of their front porch.’
“Although deputies are on the lookout for package thieves, Dantice reminds residents to take preventative steps with scheduled package deliveries.
“’Sign up for alerts from UPS or USPS so that you can get email or text notifications for when your package is arriving,’ Dantice said. ‘Make arrangements to be home, or have a neighbor pick it up for you. Don’t leave it sitting out.’”
