Ways to protect your packages from 'porch pirates'
FRESNO, Calif. (FOX26) —
As Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping comes to a close, packages are beginning to arrive on front doorsteps... and so are thieves.
Fortunately many are now turning to cameras like RING to help keep porch pirates at bay.
As you can see in some of the videos, they actually work.
Not only are the cameras picking up the would-be thieves, but some homeowners talk through the device, telling the porch pirate to put the package back.
If you don't have a front door camera, there are still a few things you can do to keep your packages safe from thieves.
- Get your neighbors to help by joining a Neighborhood Watch
- Consider an Amazon Locker or similar secure pickup location
- Have your packages delivered to your place of work
