ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) - St. Louis Police are advising people to take steps to prevent a particular type of theft.
The tips come on heel of three alleged incidents where packages were stolen from front porches in the Shaw neighborhood in South St. Louis. All three incidents allegedly occurred within the last month.
Police recommend people who will not be home at the time the package will be delivered to ask the delivery company to hold the package at its location. Authorities also suggest that someone expecting a package should not leave a note on the door telling the driver where the hiding place for the package is.
