Packages disappearing from Columbus homes

The Columbus Police Department is asking for the public’s help in solving multiple thefts of packages delivered to area homes.

“By tracking the package electronically and making sure someone is home to accept and sign for the package, you can help protect yourself from being a victim,” said Columbus Police Department spokesman Sgt. Matt Harris, who asked that people report any suspicious activity.

Anyone with information about such thefts may contact Columbus police at 812-376-2600. Tips and information can be left anonymously.
