The Farmington Public Safety Department is warning residents to watch for package-stealing “porch pirates” as more deliveries arrive during the holiday season.

A resident recently reported a white, male teenager, wearing a green jacket , black pants, and with a bandaged left hand, attempting to steal packages off a porch on Gill Road, between Grand River and Freedom Road. Anyone with information about the incident should call 248-474-4700 ext. 2.

Officials urge residents to remain alert, watch over neighbors’ homes, and call 9-1-1 to report suspicious activity.
