With the pandemic still upon us and the holiday online shopping season in full swing, Sunnyvale Police are setting up decoy packages to catch porch pirate.

Neighborhoods have encouraged residents to take matters into their own hands by installing security cameras or only having packages delivered at a time when someone can bring the package inside.

The Morning Show with Nikki Medoro invites callers to share their related experiences and what they do to avoid becoming victims.
