Just got this notice today from the Wash. Co. Sherrif's office. Thought I would share. James Washington County Sheriff's Office Community Notice DATE: December 14, 2009 FROM: Patrol Commander Jeff Mori SUBJECT: HOLIDAY DELIVERY CAUTION Your Sheriffs Office is fielding numerous calls about stolen deliveries. According to our Property Crimes Detectives, thieves in Washington County are already shopping for parcels left on your porch by delivery services. If possible, please do not authorize package delivery without a signature, or ask a trusted neighbor to watch for expected deliveries and hold them until you return home. The problem is not isolated to one area, and in some cases, it appears that the thieves may be following the delivery trucks. Please watch out for your neighbors and report any suspicious activity by calling 9-1-1. For more information about your Sheriffs Office, visit www.co.washington.or.us/sheriff.
