ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX 9) - It turns out not all thank you notes are welcomed.
Friday, the St. Paul Police Department shared a photo of a thank you note left by a “porch pirate” who had stolen some packages from a home on the 800 block of Watson Avenue.
“So just a quick little thank you for leaving the opernity [sic] of stealing your package very nice of you,” the note reads.
It is signed, “The new owner of your package.”
St. Paul Police are reminding the non-Grinches there are a few things you can do to help prevent porch robberies.
1. Require a signature for delivery.
2. Have packages delivered to a trusted neighbor.
3. Have your package delivered to your work address.
4. Have your package delivered to an Amazon locker.
5. Have packages delivered to a neighborhood store.
Additionally the SPPD says they have plenty of “bait packages” out there to help nab thieves.
