CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Charlottesville Police Chief Michael Kochis says people across the community are reporting packages stolen. This is considered a larceny-theft.

Kochis says if you notice a package is missing after it says it was delivered, reach out to the police because this could be a trend. 

“Well, what I would tell you first call us. You need to call us and report it, because you may think it was just your package, not a big deal but there may have been other packages, so if you don’t have a video or a ring camera or something like that that’s okay. Somebody else on your block might,” he said.

He says crimes like this have been what police have been responding to more recently so be sure to keep track of your packages.
