Police advise shoppers have packages delivered to their workplace or a neighbor’s house to minimize theft risk. The department also suggests scheduling package drop-offs for when you know you’ll be home, or advising mail carriers to put packages in discreet places. 

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to contact Gwinnett County detectives at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. Crime Stoppers tips may be rewarded with up to $2,000 if they lead to an arrest or indictment.
