Packages Stolen From Porches
Someone's stealing packages right off front porches in North Asheville in broad daylight. It's happened at least six times and three happened on Maywood Road in the past week. Police and deputies think someone's following delivery drivers and swooping in the steal the parcels after they're dropped off.
One victim says it's disturbing that people are doing this. But in her case, the thieves didn't make off with anything expensive.
"My husband and I are going to an ugly Christmas sweater party. So they got one of those ugly Christmas sweaters," said Kristin Compton.
If you have packages on order, it's a good idea to either have them delivered to a neighbor who is home or to where you work. Some people are also putting up a note asking delivery drivers to leave parcels on a side or back porch.
