In the last week the Pikesville Precinct has experienced an increase in package thefts, particularly along the Milford Mill Road corridor.  These packages have been delivered and left unattended at residences.  Detectives are actively investigating these cases.  Please see the following recommendations to prevent your packages from being stolen:

Package Delivery Theft Prevention

In most occasions, when you order items and the merchandise is delivered straight to your home, the boxes are left unattended at your front door.  Most deliveries DO NOT require a signature. These packages can catch the eye of potential thieves and can offer criminals that “crime of opportunity.”  Thieves who are looking to steal these packages will follow or watch for UPS, Fed Ex, USPS Mail, and other delivery service trucks so they can target your home after the parcels are delivered.  Follow these tips to prevent packages from being stolen from the front of your home:

  • Ask for a tracking number. Most major shipping companies offer this service at no charge. This number allows you to track your packages and notifies you when they will be delivered.
  • Request a “Signature Delivery Option.” This requires a signature when the packages are delivered and ensures they will not be left at the front door.
  • Request a specific drop off time and date when you will be home to accept your packages.
  • Arrange to have your packages held at the shipping service so you can pick them up.
  • Ask the delivery service to leave your packages at a side or back door. You could also request the delivery service to leave packages in an enclosed porch so that the packages are out of sight.
  • Have your packages delivered to your workplace or home of a friend / relative / neighbor who will be home to accept your packages.
  • Ask to have your packages delivered to a participating retail store so you can pick them up at your convenience.

Pleas, be vigilant and report any activity, persons, or vehicles in your neighborhood that seem out of the ordinary. If you notice suspicious activity, safely get a good description of the subjects and/or vehicle and call 911. Officers will respond to investigate the person and may just catch a criminal in the act or prevent a crime from happening to begin with.

REMEMBER, YOU ARE THE EYES AND EARS OF YOUR COMMUNITY!
