From Carolyn and the Sheriff’s station:

Warm greetings of the season to all, even on a cold, rainy day!

Here’s your reminder to not be a victim of criminals this year.

It is being reported, although not yet in Altadena, that teams of people are again following FedEx and UPS delivery trucks, collecting what the delivery trucks drop off on porches.

If you’re expecting deliveries, consider asking a trusted neighbor to watch out for the delivery vehicles to show up.  Most of us recognize the windows of time in which the trucks usually arrive.  Ask a neighbor to collect your packages for you.

We can all keep a close eye out for suspicious vehicles as well.

Don’t let the thieves spoil your season of giving by giving in ways you didn’t intend.

And here’s another tip: If possible, have your packages sent to your office. –DSP
