Stealing packages from front porches has become more frequent in recent years as internet shopping has become more popular. Vandalia police have investigated several theft complaints over the past year where thieves have stolen packages after they were delivered and left unattended at a house or business.
What can you do to prevent becoming a victim to these thieves? Here are some helpful tips to avoid these thefts:

• Have your items delivered to a local Amazon locker and pick your items up from there. Most lockers have 24 hour pick up, but each locations’ hours may vary. ... See MoreSee Less
