Asheville police warn of stolen packages before holidays

ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

Asheville police are warning residents after packages were taken from the outside of homes in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

Sgt. Dave Romick said a witness believed an older navy blue Jeep Liberty with two men in their thirties was responsible for at least one stolen package.

"UPS and FedEx expects to have the busiest holiday delivery season ever. Considering all the online shopping, it's not all that surprising. There are ways to protect yourself from holiday package theft. Ship the package to a location where you know someone will be available to receive it. Your work address, or to a trusted neighbor. You may want to consider the ‘signature required' option. You can also have the package held for pickup at UPS or FedEx," Romick suggested.

Anyone with information about the vehicle is asked to call the Asheville Police Department at 828-252-1110 or Crime Stoppers at 828-255-5050.
