Beware of “Porch Pirates” during the holidays…..

 "Porch pirates follow delivery trucks around in residential neighborhoods looking to steal your packages. This crime can occur any time of the year, but it's more likely to occur now due to the holidays approaching. Please be mindful when you order online - sign up to track your packages, have packages delivered to a locked mailbox or your work address, arrange to be home when the package is delivered, or ask a trusted neighbor to pick up your package. "


Have a safe and enjoyable Christmas season.

Sheriff Lanier
