Colorado City Ranks 8th in Nation for Package Theft
In 2017, nearly 26 million Americans were struck by porch pirates.
SafeWise compared FBI Crime Data to Google Trend searches for “missing package” and “stolen package” to analyze theft rates for the entire year. They then compared those rates to holiday-specific rates of theft.
These are the top 10 metros where porch pirates strike most often:
- San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose, California
- Salt Lake City, Utah
- Portland, Oregon
- Baltimore, Maryland
- Seattle-Tacoma, Washington
- Chicago, Illinois
- Austin, Texas
- Denver, Colorado
- Los Angeles, California
- Sacramento-Stockton-Modesto, California
Denver, Chicago and Sacramento-Stockton-Modesto are new to the list, while the other cities made the list for the second year in a row.
SafeWise reports that more than half of the metros where porch pirates strike the most are also high-tech hubs.
