The convenience of online shopping means there's been an increase in orders and an increase in thefts. 

This new report looked at Amazon shoppers and it showed there's a lot of package thefts in Baltimore. 

Charm City was ranked the 8th worst city for thefts in the country.

Amazon Locker is available in Baltimore. With that service, customers can choose a Locker location as their delivery address and pick up their orders there. 

Amazon Key is also available. When using this service, delivery drivers will go inside customers' houses and drop off your packages when they're not home. Those who order with this service must have an Amazon indoor security camera and compatible lock. 

The Shorr Packaging Group looked at Google search data to come with their findings. 

The three worst cities: San Francisco, Seattle and Minneapolis.
