TPS issued a Public Safety Alert on November 23, 2020, in which they warned Torontonians of a recent increase in package theft in the city.
Police are asking the public to stay vigilant and ensure their items are dropped off at "designated areas."
Remain vigilant and help reduce these types of crimes by requesting or designating a specific area for packages to be dropped off.
