Santa Barbara Police Warn of UPS, FedEx Parcel Thefts

The Santa Barbara Police Department issued a warning Thursday after receiving reports of thefts of UPS and FedEx packages.

Sgt. Riley Harwood said delivered parcels are being stolen from front doorsteps.

A package was taken Tuesday from a residence in the 1400 block of West Valerio St., and on Thursday, packages were taken from residences in the 1500 block of West Valerio Street and the 600 block of West De la Guerra Street, according to Harwood.

He said residents throughout the city should stay alert and report suspicious activity to 9-1-1.

Residents expecting packages to be delivered are encouraged to use online tracking services provided by UPS, FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service, he said, and to bring packages inside as soon as possible after they’re delivered.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
