Amazon delivery drivers used to toss my packages into my back yard. This was fine until one day they threw something i couldn't find. Point being, you can make special requests about placement to them.

We are redoing our yard next year. One of the things I'm having put in is a wall by the front door so no one can see if there is a package there.

They don`t only steal parcels. They have stolen by pool equipment from my backyard. Waiting for them to steal trees and bushes next.

I have a wall like that. Some delivery people are smart enough to put packages near it, not all. I never specifically request to have them placed there though.

We have a camera near our front door that tracks movement, scares some people away pretty quick.

$300?

I would rather just have Amazon step in and give me a refund if a package ever gets stolen

I've never had a package stolen, but I see it all the time on the Ring (doorbell) neighborhood alerts. So much scum in this city.
I knew my idea was far from original thought, but good to see LE somewhere is doing something about it. It would be good to see a local news story of our LE grabbing a few of these folks.

I think our cul de sac of four homes gets between 10 and 20 deliveries a day. We get the normal Fedex and UPS, Some truck deliveries for the nursing home and an occasional (monthly) semi for one guy.

None of the porches are fully visible from the street. One is actually an armored delivery area with video.

Never been a package robbery of which we are aware and you could easily get shot at one house. Used to get gas siphoned from our old truck to the degree we left the smaller tank unlocked to avoid damage.

This is the time of year this stuff is happening more. Keep your eyes peeled folks, you never know when trouble is near.


Bonus points to anyone who beats a package thief to a pulp, and gets it all on video.

Any recommendation for reasonably priced and easy to install video camera, preferably with rechargeable battery?

Ring Doorbell. Gen-1 can be had for under $100 often, plus $30/year for cloud video storage (required).
Gen-2 is much improved and there have also been sales on it often.

Plenty of installation examples here: https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...+ring+doorbell

It's really simple to install and the battery on mine lasts about 3 months and it's easy to remove (once installed) when you need to charge it via usb.

I kept my existing doorbell, and often someone will press that instead of the ring, but it doesn't matter because it records when it detects motion.
