Tips To Keep Packages Safe
A man shared a video from west Wichita. It shows a woman driving by his mom's home, backing up into the driveway then stealing a crockpot and another item. He said it totaled about a couple hundred dollars.
Derby police say they have seen a spike in stolen packages over the span of a week. Officers there recently arrested a woman in connection to several stolen packages in town.
Derby's deputy police chief, Lt. Brandon Russell, says multiple stolen package reports have been made in the last week.
"The amount is not the concern to us, it's the fact that it's happening, that's the concern to us. You should be able to have a package delivered and not have a problem with that," said Russell.
While it seems to be happening more often, there are a few things you can do to keep your items safe.
1. Make sure someone is home
2. Deliver it to your office
3. Have it held at the store
4. Use lockbox
