Package theft or “porch piracy” is a major problem, particularly during the holidays, as just-dropped-off parcels are snatched from doorsteps by thieves who often shadow delivery trucks.

I recently covered this sinister trend in a set of articles that was well received on TwinCities.com.

I detailed the trend, discussed how residents are installing cameras to catch porch poachers in the act, described other precautions to take, and told the tale of a Minneapolis man who watched from Maui as a woman took several of his deliveries.

Today, John Hines of WCCO Radio had me on his program to talk about all of this.
