Getting a tenant evicted for behavior is pretty much impossible, so the police route would be the easier way to go.
The package was delivered usps, I'm aware that's a federal crime. I don't know if anyone else is missing package.

I would like to go the police route, but I'm concerned of a grudge forming, and who knows what other stupidity she has up her sleeves.

Seems like you just don't have the balls to make a decision... If it's all about the stolen packages it's pretty simple. Either you file a complaint or you don't. Do you really need to come to a board to ask a question that you claim you know the answers to?? Every time someone has given you advice you respond with how you know XYZ...

It must be miserable having no social life except for city-date, Idk why but I have empathy for your type, and apparently my neighbors type...

Thanks for listing my options, my world would be lost without your help.

I'm not looking for someone to make a decision, more of what happened in other peoples experiences with THIS type of situation.

You need Dr. Phil in your life.

This is insane. We live in a neighborhood. My neighbor had her package stolen. They printed the photos of the person walking up, picking up the package and walking off with it. She made a police report. The police distributed the flyer door to door in the neighborhood. She hasn't had another incident of theft.

Your neighbor sounds very unstable. Having something on record to establish a patern of illegal behavior and harrasment is advisable just incase she escalates with her unreasonable behavior. Make a formal complaint to management with proof.

I certainly don't need your empathy. You need empathy coming here looking for something that is pretty cut and dry. Either file a report or you don't, but like you said, you're "concerned" about what your neighbor may do. I'm shaking in my pants just thinking about the horror of it all.

Thanks for posting useful info, unlike some others...

I agree, I think forming a track record early will help in the future if she decides to escalate her low way of life. I was hoping to be fair and give her a chance at living peaceful.

The proof is solid, video of her dragging the box away and a video of her bringing back the contents of the opened box.

I had a colleague who was having her NY Times Sunday paper stolen by a neighbor. She knew it was her and in fact caught her red handed. Eventually she left a note with her and it stopped. If the OP is so concerned, just have the packages delivered and held by a service. Problem solved since there would be nothing to steal.

I knew a package was dropped off while at work, when I came home there was no package at the door. So I went back to the Ring 2 recordings on my phone, and caught my next door neighbor coming out of her apartment and dragging a big box of bounty I ordered from amazon.

I knocked on her door soon after, no answer. I decided to leave a note "Hi, thanks for holding onto my package, please leave it by my door".

Soon after, same evening, I saw a motion notification on my phone, and saw her drop off the bounty infront of my door, unboxed, which means she discarded the box it came in.

Saw her two days later in the hallway, and I let her know 3 bounty rolls are missing, she returned it 10mins later. I Gave a her a strict warning letting her know that was unacceptable, and to make sure nothing like that happens again.

Fast forward to a week later, security comes to my apt at 11pm while I have friends over, saying I'm doing a bbq, I let them in and showed them it's an electrical bbq, which is perfectly legal in my CO-OP. I checked the motion recordings on my phone, and notice the same scum neighbor came out of her apartment and took a good look at my apt#, then obviously made the call to security. (Me and her share a balcony that is divided by a splitter in the middle as well as a sheds on both sides.)


I haven't done anything for revenge or to spite her, so after stealing my package and letting her off easy, I'm shocked she tried to get me in trouble by calling security.

She's an alcoholic, always loud, and has a different guy coming to her apt. every night, she a bit trashy as well.

Do I report her and press charges, risking a grudge and further low actions, or wait it out and report her once she really asks for it?
Woooooooooow. Keep recording her, but let everything build to a point where there’s overwhelming proof that she’s a douche, and deliver everything to not only your landlord, but share this with your neighbors and police. Light a fire up under her ass to get her to move

I don't like crime.

I think I would have taken the video and shown it to the police. Because you simply enabled her to continue to steal from you and perhaps others. I also wouldn't show the video to her at this point, because she's just going to damage the device.

The other alternative is to contact the shipper and share the video with them, because they might not delivery items to her any longer as punishment making her come to their pick-up area.

Sorry you have to go through this. Crime sucks and a neighbor too.

Meanwhile, contact the landlord and tell them about it, and ask if they can hold items in their office for you. They might be able to kick her out of the building for stealing.
