The Albuquerque Police Department is trying different techniques to catch porch pirates.
“I can almost guarantee when we start getting some of these recovered items back, we’ll find other people’s recovered items and the cool thing is we can get it back to those people right away,” said Officer Simon Drobik.
APD has partnered up with the postal inspector as well as Amazon and Ring.
They’ve set up surveillance, placed packages on residents porches and then track them if they get swiped.
Walmart is also playing a key role by donating the products that will be placed inside the packages.
APD says when it put out the call for Albuquerque residents to participate, dozens of people volunteered.
