Package Thefts During the Holidays: What You Should Know

From Gahanna Division of Police Chief Jeff Spence:

On behalf of the entire Gahanna Division of Police, I wish you all a safe, enjoyable and memory-filled holiday season.  Unfortunately, there are those that will take advantage of the gift-giving season by stealing packages.  Online shopping has increased substantially since the pandemic and so too have the number of reported package thefts.  This crime trend is not new and not unique to Gahanna.  Law enforcement agencies in the region are working together to address this trend.  Please see the attached press release from the Franklin County Chiefs Association for more information and helpful tips to help stop package thefts.

 Thank you and Happy Holidays!
