Package theives are back in the neighborhood, according to a report emailed in from a My Ballard reader.
A local resident had a package stolen off the front porch of her home located near 26th Ave NW and NW 64th St on Friday afternoon.
“I’m going to have to start using the Amazon lockers. I’m concerned that if smaller crimes like this are happening in this area, bigger crimes will soon follow. I just want neighbors to be alert,” writes Julie.
Keeping this report of package theft in mind, remember when ordering online attempt to send the packages to your work location or to somewhere where people will be present to receive the package.
Alternatively, if you are ordering from Amazon they offer a secure Amazon Locker service where packages can be picked up from lockers at various locations around Seattle including at the Ballard 7 Eleven (1550 NW Market St). The service has no extra charge and provides additional security for your packages.
