This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

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.
