There have been three instances reported to the Bismarck Police Department where packages have been stolen from door steps.

One package was taken around the 100 Block of Santa Fe Avenue, where this package was ripped from the mail room, and the contents were about $50 in merchandise. Bismarck PD also recorded another situation in the 100 block of Boise Ave., where the resident was tracking his package. It was delivered at about 6:30 pm and by 8pm the package was gone. The box contained an iPhone 8.

There is another instance where a Bismarck woman knew her packages were delivered but were gone when she arrived home.

You should take the necessary precautions, even possibly having your packages delivered to your work. Some people even go as far as to have a remote camera set up on their property. Some people have their parcels delivered at their neighbor’s home. Neighborhood Watch programs work very well this time of year.

Bismarck Police are investigating all thefts.
