We all saw this coming.

The Superior Police Department has officially issued a warning regarding package theft.

They shared the warning on Facebook Wednesday writing, "Unfortunately, the package thefts have started. With the increase in online shopping, we are learning of a larger number of incidents in which packages are stolen from porches."

The Department also offered up a few tips on how you can avoid becoming a victim.

  • Make sure your package is delivered somewhere that someone can grab it so it isn't left outside on your doorstep. Think an office or a neighbor's house.
  • See if you can pick it up from the delivery company's office instead of them dropping it off.

They ended their post by assuring residents that they will do their best to look out for these types of crimes.

If you spot any suspicious activity, you are asked to call 9-1-1.

Holiday season is in full swing and as we inch closer to the end of the month, it is likely we will be getting a lot more packages on our doorstep. Bring them inside as soon as you can and don't let a Grinch steal Christmas!
