PSA: Our monthly diaper order was delivered while we were out today within Park Ridge. We got home around 6:15pm and noticed the box was a little torn. Shortly after our neighbor (an awesome Polish lady) stopped my husband to tell him the police may be stopping by. She had seen a black SUV drive by slowly around 4pm, turn around and park across the street. Two girls got out, took a package from a house, crossed the street to our house, and attempted to steal our package. That's when our neighbor came out shoeless yelling at them telling them to drop the package! They dropped it in the middle of the street and took off. We live on Talcott a couple of blocks from Cumberland, which is a fairly busy street. Please watch your packages! And your neighbors!

What they do is follow the FedEx or ups trucks. then if the driver rings the bell and no one answers they leave the packages on the door step. Burgulars then run and get package. they steal from you without even breaking in. Make sure you get the neighbor a bottle of wine or something.

That's horrible I just had my daughter crib stolen off our porch while I was not home and my son was in surgery on wednesday. I to live on a busy street in downtown des plaines. If anyone sees this crib for sale new in box please let me know. I think they thought it was a tv. It a very expensive crib.

That's so upsetting! I get packages all the time that are left out in the open on the stairs. How can we prevent this?

Ups actually left it outside on the porch, not in the building hallway. I live on Thacker st directly across the street from central school. A lot of traffic. I seriously believe someone seen the large box and it's not really that wide. I believe whoever took it thought it was a large tv. It's so sad.

In Sweden packages are no longer delivered to your home. They are left at a local location like a gas station or market and you must go and pick it up. Dishonest people ruin it for everyone else.
