Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

I got an Amazon package stolen from my porch within 15 minutes of delivery today.
The modus operandi is walk back and forth to make sure the package is still there, come to the door and pretend knock, hang out for a few seconds not to seem suspicious, then leave.

My husband saw the thief on the Nest app and followed him down the road, he confronted him and told him: “were you just on my porch?” – the thief was hiding the package inside his coat – to which he replied: “oh yeah, wrong house”

It wasn’t worth it getting stabbed over a package so my husband let it go. The police said the thief will probably wear the same hat, coat and/or backpack again. Please share so people are aware.”
