(KMOV.com) – Police said thieves are using a different method to steal packages from front porches in Fenton.
Authorities said criminals are following delivery trucks into subdivisions, then stealing the packages that the drivers are dropping off.
“Most people who see that are home right now see a ups drive right up the road and if somebody's driving right behind it and park on the street they probably have an idea of what they're up to,” Aaron Dilks with Fenton Police said. “So report anything and we'll come out and check it out."
Officers said it is a good idea to track any package online so you know when to expect its arrival. They also recommend that you request that it be signed for before it can dropped off, or have it delivered to a neighbor.
