HOLIDAY DELIVERY: Man Catches Package Thief
After losing money on one too many packages delivered to his home, a Davenport man took matters into his own hands.
Kevin Prior setup a video camera on his front porch and set out a decoy package, after he had 3 deliveries stolen from his doorstep.
He didn’t have too wait long, the camera caught a man walking up Prior’s driveway, and helping himself to a Fed-ex package sitting on the porch.
Prior turned over the video evidence to Police.
One way to protect yourself from theft is to request signature confirmation. That way a package won’t be left on a doorstep when no one is home.
Another option is to have a package shipped to the address of a friend or relative you know will be home during the day.
You can also pay to insure packages through most major carriers.
