Some love the rush of Black Friday and trying to get the best deals they possibly can, for others they much prefer to wait for Cyber Monday and have the Christmas presents delivered to their residence.
Officer Alan Mills with the Taylorville Police Department says they get reports of packages being stolen year round, but around the holidays there is a spike in the amount of packages stolen.
There have been reports of potential thieves following delivery trucks around to see what they can grab. Mills says he would recommend having your packages delivered to your place of work if the boss is okay with that.
Mills appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
