Fountain P.D. Warns Of Package Thieves Taking Items From Front Porches


December 6, 2017

With the holiday season upon us again and the mailing of packages to our friends and family, we are starting to experience calls of packages being stolen from front porches in our region. The thieves typically follow or watch for a delivery truck in the neighborhoods and when a package is placed on a citizen’s front porch, the thieves walk up and take the package.

We would like to remind citizens that when mailing packages, have them delivered to a post office or other secured facility and insist the package be signed for by the recipient. Keep an eye out for delivery trucks in your neighborhood and watch for persons or vehicles following the trucks. If you see anyone suspicious or someone taking a package from a neighbor’s porch, please call your local law enforcement agency.

The Fountain Police Department would like to wish everyone a safe and fun holiday season.

If you have any questions or want to report suspicious behavior, please call the Fountain Police Department at 719-382-8555.
