12/3/2022 Porch Pirate Season
Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping is over. The Christmas season is about to ramp up into full swing and and unfortunately the criminals are not taking any holiday time off this year. Its PORCH PIRATE SEASON too!! We have had reports that they are busy throughout Well Branch, including Stoneridge!!
This is the season when the criminals follow around the Amazon and UPS trucks hoping to get the presents off your porch before you can get them under the tree. Don't make it easy. Use the secure lockers that are being offered or even though it is a hassle to pick them up at a Delivery station, it's better to receive your package than to give it to the Grinchs. Nothing is worse than purchasing the perfect present and having it stolen at your front door. Use the Close Patrol Request below to have the Sheriff Deputies drive by several times to keep an eye on the home if you are going out of town. Having increased police patrols around is the best deterrent to crime!
If you are going out of town for the holidays you can file a Close Patrol by the Travis County Sheriffs Office by clicking on the link CLOSE PATROL REQUEST
