One of the most convenient ways to get all of your holiday shopping done is to order online! But online shopping comes with a few risks, like thieves getting to your gifts before you do.
Dozens of Howard County residents are being reunited with their stolen packages Thursday night.
Here's a few things you can do to make sure you get your package:
- Under special instructions, ask the deliverer to put the package in a hidden spot (behind a bush, behind a wooden fence).
- Ask neighbors to keep an eye out for your package, or even bring it inside their home.
- Require a signature, from you or a neighbor, so the package isn't left on your front porch.
- Have the package left at the Post Office.
- Use Amazon Locker
- Rent a P.O. Box
And if all else fails, you can always do what this couple did!
