A cautionary tale -- know who you're buzzing in to your building! This is from a board member of a large building on Sheridan, but it could happen anywhere:
"Two days in a row in the days just before xmas, we have people on camera getting into our building, stealing all of the packages that were left near mailboxes by UPS and USPS, and walking right out the door.
The first day it was a guy by himself, got about 4 - 5 packages. The second day it was a group of three people, they got about the same number of packages. All African American with big puffy coats on.
The way they are getting in, as best we could tell, was calling everyone in the building through the buzzer system until someone let them in. Then they just walk in, take the packages, then leave. The first time was around 6PM, and the next day they came in about 2:30 - 3PM. The police were notified but they were not helpful. The only want to hear individual police reports from those that had their packages stolen, and we don't actually know whose packages were stolen unfortunately."
