CRIME WATCH: Package thief makes off with medicine

One reader report to share tonight in West Seattle Crime Watch, from Susan in Admiral:

Just wanted to email in that a package was stolen off my porch this morning between 9:36 am (when FedEx driver says he dropped it off) and 9:45 am when I looked for the package at my front door.

I live (in the 2300 block of) 47th Ave SW. I called FedEx and the driver says he did drop it off so I guess someone must have been following the truck. The package contained rather expensive refrigerated medicine that had to be mail-ordered from AZ.

Still hoping someone finds it and brings it back!

The latest SPD package/mail-theft info is in this newsletter.

    Sorry for your troubles.  On Thursday UPS incorrectly left a package at my door that was actually for a house two streets away.  The driver misread the address so just because they have a certain time registered doesn’t mean it was delivered to the correct address.

    Just a suggestion, but expensive meds should get a signature at delivery.  Mine won’t deliver without it.

    I was away on vacation a few weeks ago and had someone’s prescription mess mailed to my house accidentally. same address different street- hopefully this is what happens and your kind neighbor who has your new sbrings them to you.

    Worth con$idering….    

    Alki Mail (4701 SW Admiral Way) has a program for those w/o PO Box’s who can have packages delivered for a small fee.  Maybe other small PO Box places around WS do also(?)

    As an annual customer, I receive a text whenever a package has been delivered and would imagine the same would apply to non box renters. 

    Well worth it in cases like this I’m sure, if not for every item worth ordering!



Sorry, comment time is over.
