Head's Up: Package Thief

There 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. 

CCRA will be having a meeting with our police captain in the Fall. Stay tuned for details.
