Dear PoPville – Stolen Packages @ 13th and Euclid St, NW


“Dear PoPville,

Wanted to see how many people were affected by package thieves (or thief) in my immediate area. Our building, at 13th and Euclid, has been targeted very consistently (once a month to even a couple times a month) and a thief enters our building, steals packages (or just the contents) and leaves. We live in a 25 unit building with no doorman and a standard key fob/buzz in system.

Anyone else in the area getting hit regularly? Anyone have success with professional security/camera service? How about with a DIY web-cam type devices? Any cool ideas or “locker boxes” people use to secure packages?Anyone have ideas on how they get in (besides being buzzed in by a careless resident? Any other suggestions to deter and prevent?

We do encourage our folks to have things delivered to work and tell people not to buzz in unknown folks (even if they say they are the delivery man). But it still happens and it is getting very frustrating and we are not sure there is much the Police can help us with.”
