Holiday Mail and Packages Being Targeted

Massachusetts' Weston Town Crier reports, "Each year at this time, police departments throughout the country receive an increased number of reports about UPS, FedEx and USPS packages being stolen from mailboxes and doorsteps."

According to the article, "Thieves will often target their victims by following behind UPS, FedEx and USPS trucks and watch for deliveries where packages are left in open areas. Once the delivery person has left the package, the thieves will go onto the property and steal these packages."

It goes on to say, "USPS mail has also been targeted as thieves are looking for mail containing cash, gift cards and other small items. Most often, the thieves work in pairs, with one person driving the car and the other one stealing the packages and mail."
