It's cyber Monday..... So that means Christmas season is upon us, during this season it is not uncommon for packages to go missing from your porch!
The Etowah County Sheriff's Office responds to calls for service every year as the Grinches known as "porch pirates" steal from our community. Here are ways that you can reduce the opportunity for the Grinches to steal your packages:
*Require a Signature for Delivery
*Use a Package Locker
*Have Packages Delivered When You'll Be Home
*Consider In-Store Pickup
*Talk to Your Neighbors
The Etowah County Sheriff's Office will be taking a proactive stance to try and capture and dissuade porch pirates from stealing from our community. As a Community we must remain vigilant and do what we can to prevent, solve and prosecute crimes. Please stay safe during this Christmas Season, and now that Thanksgiving is over it's officially time to decorate for Christmas!
Respectfully, Sheriff Jonathon Horton
