Fa-la-la-la-la / la-la-la-la, and ho-ho-ho, and a seasonal reminder: Keep an eye on any packages you get delivered to your home in the weeks ahead, or have them shipped to your workplace instead, because the holidays are prime season for grinchy parcel thieves.
Neighbor Lyndsey describes how a parcel theft unfolded near Holly Park a few days ago:
Hi Neighbors –
Just sitting here on the couch with the hubby watching TV and we heard what sounded like packages getting delivered – at 10:30 pm.
Then we heard our neighbor yelling at someone and turns out some guy was taking packages and mail from door steps all along our street near Holly Park. Our neighbor didn’t get a good look at the guy other than he was about 6 feet tall or so.
Turns out UPS delivered a package sometime this evening and didn’t even ring our bell. I’m going to leave a note to delivery folks to not leave packages on our steps now (definitely not convenient) but better than having things dropped and then stolen! 😦
Be on the lookout and hopefully with our neighbor and my husband yelling and running after the guy, he won’t be back. Best not to leave packages for the taking. Take care neighbors!!
