1/3 of all people surveyed has HAD A PACKAGE STOLEN AT SOME POINT. That's a lot different than 1/3 of all packages are stolen. Not to mention the fact that only 2,000 people were surveyed and it doesn't say where.... I'm thinking a survey conducted in Detroit will have much different numbers than one in rural Montana. Typical media sensationalism.

31 years ago I could leave the front door of my house unlocked, without worry of theft.

You're getting a little overly emotional about this. I heard the stat on the radio, so I'm definitely not here to debate it's accuracy, although I did provide Evidence in the form of a couple online reports which also indicate theft rates are high, one of the reports I provided even stated 1 in 3 nationwide. If you think you know better than to make arrangements after being in the industry 31 years, than don't make arrangements. Obviously in that case this warning wouldn't pertain to you. No one here can prove the exact percentages of packages being stolen, the point is the percentages are a lot higher today, than 31 years ago LoL.

I thought about putting Dewalt tool boxes in back of truck and having copperheads in them.Figure one way or other the thief would not be stealing anything else any time soon.
