When packages start arriving on porches in the Region during the holidays, unfortunately police say they also start getting stolen. "Obviously Christmas time a lot of people are shopping online, a lot of packages are being delivered with their gifts to residences," said Porter County Sheriffs Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Larry LaFlower. "We just want to remind residents to make sure that they or somebody else or a neighbor is going to be home when that package is delivered." He said most companies now have tracking over the computer, so you can see when it's going to be delivered,within an approximate time range, and set it up to where you're going to be home, or a relative or a neighbor can be home to get that package as soon as it arrives. Sgt. LaFlower also says requiring a signature for delivery is a way to keep packages from being stolen. Police say thieves look for big packages that are sitting on the porch of a residence or they follow an actual truck around and pick up packages afterwards.
