Las Vegas (KLAS) —Package thieves are a year-round problem, but increase before and after holidays when more packages are delivered.
According to a recent survey, it is estimated that 210 million packages have disappeared from pouches nationwide over the past year. According to a CCTV Camera World survey, nearly two-thirds of those surveyed say their luggage has been stolen more than once.
A local home security company said that package thieves aren’t the only things you have to worry about.
“One of the delivery companies, one of its drivers, picked up the bike, put it on the truck and got off the car. So you never know. You never know. So It’s always good to have a camera, “said Jon Perry, president and co-founder of Sting Alarm.
It’s also interesting to note that thieves have a favorite when it comes to the packages they steal most often. Amazon packages are usually the first choice, followed by FedEx, USPS, and UPS packages.
In many cases, the theft remains unreported. This is because people usually take the theft to a vendor or retailer to exchange items. Metro police said they could report the theft by calling 311 or stopping by the police station to fill out a report. If the stolen item is worth less than $ 1,200, it is considered a misdemeanor, but if it is greater than that, it is a felony. A person convicted of a felony can be sentenced to imprisonment.
For anti-theft, we recommend leaving the pouch light on at night, installing a video doorbell, or delivering the package elsewhere.
