It's the risk everyone takes when using their mouse to do their holiday shopping; falling victim to package thieves. The possibility of someone helping themselves to your shipped packages before you get to see them takes some of the convenience out of online shopping, but we still do it. Apparently, the instances of this happening in DeKalb is already too high, so the DeKalb Police Department is urging the public to use these precautions when deciding where to ship your packages this Christmas.

Shopping local is looking better and better every day, huh. 😡
