We all have the fear that our holiday deliveries will be snatched up off our porches when we aren't home. Unfortunately, it seems to have already happened this season. The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Department issued a statement today highlighting what you can do to help preventing your stuff from being stolen.

Here are some steps you can take!

  • Bring in packages as quickly as possible.
  • Sign up for text based delivery notifications through your online retailer.
  • Ask a neighbor to bring your packages inside if you are not home.
  • Consider options such as a Package Guard or a Security Camera.

Hopefully these precautions will be enough to deter any wannabe Jack Sparrows!
