PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – U.S. postal inspectors are teaming up with local police departments to prevent package thefts this holiday season, and several arrests have already been made in the Portland area.
The project started this week with Cyber Monday, and so far, a handful of thieves have been caught.
Postal inspectors told FOX 12 they expect more arrests to follow as the effort continues through the December and into the new year.
The inspectors explained that they have packages out all across the metro area with trackers and other devices in them, and many of the packages that have been stolen so far were placed by investigators as part of this sting. More at Fox 12 Oregon
