Video: California woman concerned over stolen packages at front door

SAN DIEGO – A Bay Park woman spoke with 10News on Monday, concerned over stolen packages at her front door.

Surveillance video shows a woman taking a delivered package from the doorstep of another woman, who only wanted to be identified by her first name, Nina.

Nina says she had a package stolen from her doorstep about a year ago and never wanted to go through that again. She installed surveillance cameras to combat the problem, only to find it happen again.

In the video, a woman in red t-shirt and sunglasses is seen taking the big red box. She makes a fast getaway in a blue Ford Focus.

She was told by San Diego police that it is a federal issue since it was delivered by U.S. Mail.

Nina tells 10News her complaints to the postal inspector have fallen on deaf ears. She says before this latest theft, she had gone to the post office and filed a request that no packages be delivered to her front door. When she inquired about why it was delivered, she was told that not everyone can be catered to.

10News’ call to the local postal service representative was not returned.

    Ah yes, the new USPS. Do postal personnel not understand that a PS 3849 ( Notice Left) form is to be placed in the customer’s mailbox if no one is available to receive the parcel ? UNLESS the parcel bears the mailer’s Carrier Release endorsement or the customer has given written permission (kept on file) packages are not to be left at the residence. When I was still in Delivery, local USPS officials started using the line, “once the mail has been delivered to its destination, any tampering or theft is a local police matter,” If that is indeed the case, perhaps USPS can save even more money by disbanding the Inspection Service; what’s to investigate ?
