Beware: Gift Deliveries

Police say thieves are stealing holiday packages that are left at consumers’ doors. A new wave of criminals are following UPS trucks, FedEx trucks and postal delivery vehicles in hopes of stealing expensive holiday gifts that were purchased online. Delivery drivers are bring told to do a better job of knocking on doors rather than just leaving packages on doorsteps. Authorities believe the thieves are either keeping the gifts for themselves or selling them online or at flea markets.
