Police warn of porch pirates stealing holiday packages


As more and more packages are dropped on residents’ doorsteps, the DeKalb Police Department is warning that they have received multiple reports of packages being stolen off front porches.

Police urge recipients to try to be home when packages are expected to arrive, and use tracking services to see exactly when they will be delivered.

Police also advise residents leave their porch light on for night deliveries.

If you do see any suspicious activity, call your local police department.
