Even nationwide 15% of Americans have been victims of porch pirating.
At a cost of OVER $5,000,000,000. That sure seems like a bunch of money lost due to these "pirates" in the USA.
Who is more likely to engage in "porch pirating", men or women?
Well, according to finder.com, MEN are FAR more likely (500 x more likely!) to steal things off your front porch.
Millenials experience more package theft than any other age group.
Not too long ago, there was a porch pirate busted in Northport, Alabama.
They had taken a bunch of packages in Northport.
It was NOT a man, however, it was a woman from Northport.
Ashley Hall, 35, was arrested for the thefts in October of last year.
Miss Hall, according to TPD, had been doing this for many months.
SO, if you live in Alabama, be careful with your orders from Amazon, Etsy, Walmart, Target, Belk, Ebay....uhh...ok you get the point.
