ROSEBURG, OR. -- Some recent mail thefts in Roseburg have police encouraging residents to take extra measures when having packages sent to their homes.

Earlier this week, a woman living on Luellen Dr. in Roseburg had her mail stolen. and several packages taken off her porch containing makeup.

She was able to find her mail, but the makeup has not been returned.

One neighbor we talked to said it’s made her think about tracking her packages more closely.

“I order way too much stuff online, so I’m continually getting packages in the mail. So, I’m definitely watching my mail more often. Especially the bigger ones that are really visible, like up by the front door. Yeah, I’ll definitely be watching more closely from here on out.”

Just last week, police say a woman in the Hucrest neighborhood had her mail stolen.

In a Facebook post, she said it had been found near Hucrest Elementary School.

If you’re expecting a package, police ask you to work with friends and neighbors to make sure they’re picked up.

“Track your packages. Don’t leave them sitting, if you can help it. Come home from lunch if you’re working and try to pick them up then," said Sgt. Dennis Chrisenbery with Roseburg Police. "Or, have a friend or neighbor that you trust pick them up for you. That’s gonna limit – you know, the longer it sits there, the more there’s an opportunity for somebody to see it and maybe decide to make a bad decision and commit a crime.”

The United States Postal Service also has an app called "Informed Delivery," which sends you photos of the packages or envelopes you will get in the mail that day, and let you know when they're delivered.
