is a thief going around with a knife, taking packages, then opening
them up somewhere else. If the person doesn't like what's inside, the
package is left there with the contents still inside. Someone
found two packages opened ahead of their home. It was addressed to
someone on Uber street. The person and a neighbor took the package to
the addressee on Uber. Bottom line: do not have packages delivered to
your home if you are not there.
