Police warn of Porch Pirates

The Huntsville OPP is reminding the public to beware of "porch pirates". Porch pirates are thieves who steal packages that are left at someone's house when they are not home to accept the parcel.

Police say you can help protect yourself by

  • Tracking deliveries online and try to be home at the time a package is delivered.
  • Ask a trusted friend or neighbour to receive your package.
  • Have the packages delivered to your work.

-Consider installing a motion-detection home security system that records video and sends immediate notice of activity to your cell phone.
