It’s that time of year—when holiday packages can disappear from doorsteps before they have a chance to wait beneath a Christmas tree.
WPXI reported recently that thieves are targeting packages left on porches in the Pittsburgh area, and Brookline is no exception.
Pittsburgh police took a report at noon on Dec. 12 that someone had stolen a package from a home in the 700 block of Fordham Street in Brookline. The package presumably had been delivered to the home earlier that day.
