Secondo a sondaggio from SafeWise and Cove Home Security, uno stimato 210 milioni di pacchi sono stati rubati negli ultimi 12 mesi negli Stati Uniti.
Il sondaggio, che è stato pubblicato all'inizio di questo mese, trovato quello 64.1% of respondents have had at least one package stolen from their porch in the last year. Nel frattempo, 53.5% of respondents have had multiple packages stolen over the same period of time, SafeWise and Cove reported.
The survey also found that more than half of the stolen packages cost between $ 50 e $ 200.
Durante vacanze, porch thefts are going to be even more of a concern as people order their gifts online and have busier holiday schedules, according to one criminal justice and package theft expert.
“Package theft is a crime of opportunity,” Dott. Ben Stickle, a member of the SafeWise advisory group, said in the report. “The more packages left for longer periods of time on a porch, the more likely they are to be stolen. As the Christmas gift season gets into full swing, there will be a significant increase in packages on a porch.”
