I recently dropped of a package at a house and left it next to the front door when I found out they weren't home. Came back ten minutes later as I was worried it would get stolen to find it missing.

They did not appear to be home. ( no signs of life at the house)

Maybe the owner came back and took it?

Yes, even a damned rocking chair on Christmas. Well, at least we've had it for over seven years, and it wasn't in the best shape. The other things, though... Pisses me off. I now have a motion-detector, a security camera, and a cheeky "smile for the camera" sign on my porch.

I live behind a fence with two big(100lb) dogs in my yard. Nobody stealing anything from my yard. I do have to remember to bring the dogs in when I'm expecting a package though. Sometimes they'll scare off the delivery guy.

My childhood house has a screen door and a 4-5 foot doorway to the main front door, there was a doormat on the screen door and the front foot and is overall just an area leading to the main door, there were a couple of pairs of shoes in the area and someone ended up stealing them someday.

Nothing is worse than checking ebay tracking and it says delivered but it never comes because someone took it

we have locked mailboxes around here

unless the parcels will not fit in the mailboxes then they will drop at it at the front door

most mailmen will put the items out of sight to avoid thieves

but there are those who will follow these dhl/ups/usps/fedex trucks to steal packages after each drop off..

no stolen mails for me though

it will be weird if you caught the thief in the act what would you do ?

Yeah, I drove around the neighbourhood trying to look for someone walking around with the package I dropped off. had no such luck....
Just hoping the owners did pick it up somehow.

No, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if it does end up happening one day, especially with the people who live around us

No...That's a pretty serious charge though, if I'm recalling the penalties correctly.

I had mail stolen before it even got to my front yard. It got "lost" halfway through transit.
Posted 11/4/16
No, thankfully. I know I could've a few times, since I had a package just waiting outside my door. I had awesome neighbors! I'm glad they didn't take anything.
