Watch Out For Package Thieves This Holiday Season

The Grinch is out this time of year! With the holidays upon us, and online shopping growing ever more popular, the Amador County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind residents that thieves love easy targets, such as packages left on porches. During this busy time of year the Sheriff’s Office needs our help reporting all suspicious vehicles and persons. Some recommendations to reduce the risk of falling victim to package theft include tracking all shipments online, requiring a signature delivery, shipping to a store when available, having packages sent to a workplace or trusted friend available to receive them, installing a locking bin for deliveries, and utilizing good quality surveillance cameras. The Sheriff’s Office reminds Amador County residents and visitors to stay safe, remain vigilant and most of all have an amazing holiday season!
