Package Stolen from Porch

Way 1. Take a Detailed Search of Your Home and Neighborhood When Package Was Stolen

When your parcel or package is stolen or lost off your porch, doorstep or somewhere else, you need to search around all the entrances of your residence to find your missing package.

Amazon, USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL and other courier companies sometimes may have just left your package in a rather hidden place, such as porches, bushes, garages, window grilles, on the tree, etc.

Also check with your neighbors for your package delivery. Sometimes the courier would make a mistake and deliver the package to your neighbors. If your kind neighbor helps you pick up your package, you can get your parcel back smoothly.

Way 2. Use Security Camera Footage to Track Your Package Stolen from Porch/Doorway

Security camera footage is an effective way to track down your stolen package.

When you install a security camera (the plug-and-play wireless security camera and PoE IP camera are highly recommended), you can check when your package was delivered to your home. You can take a look at the below package delivery video captured by the Reolink RLC-410 (shared by a customer).

If your package is stolen from porch or doorstep by a package thief after the courier has delivered your package to your apartment, your security camera will record everything, including the thief's face and the license plate number (if he or she drives a car).

With the thief's clear images and license plate number, police can help you locate your stolen package fast and recover your parcel quickly.

What's more, if you live with a bad neighbor, perhaps your package left on the porch or doorstep is stolen by your bad neighbor. With the obvious evidence provided by your security camera, your bad neighbor can't deny his or her bad behavior. Thus you can find your stolen package back.

A news that a Reolink PoE IP camera caught package thieves in the act got a heated discussion on Facebook. You can check the whole story here.

    Hard to believe a website selling cameras will suggest buying a camera. Newsflash: Police will not bother to help you even if you have video of the the thief's face and license number. Go ask them if you don't believe me!
