Crime Alert - Package Theft

package

Package thefts have continued past the holdiays. The Nextdoor Silverside app has posts regarding package break-ins in our surrounding communities.

Following are suggestions from Corporal Tracy Duffy to keep your purchases safe.

The New Castle County Police would like to warn residents about the risk of having packages delivered to an empty home. Unfortunately, “Package Pirates” are on the look-out for an easy grab.

Last year, the New Castle County Police received a total of 98 complaints regarding the theft of packages. Nearly half of the reports were received in the months of November and December. Recently, there have been reports of suspicious vehicles following delivery trucks. We have a few tips to keep “Package Pirates” and Grinches from taking your packages.

  1. Opt to require a signature for all package deliveries. Residents should
    review the delivery options at “check-out” for there is an option to leave
    specific delivery instructions for the delivery company on where to leave
    packages.

  2. Consider sending the package to a family member or trusted neighbor who
    is home during the day to accept the delivery.

  3. Use the “pick-up at store” option for merchandise or pick-up packages at a local UPS or FedEx location.

  4. Sign-up for e-mail or text message alerts from UPS or FedEx. These alerts will notify customers of when packages were delivered.

Remember, if you are a victim of a theft; please call the New Castle County Police. Their non-emergency number is: 302-573-2800.
