What fun - or maybe not
When I first saw this I thought what fun.
Amazon has teamed up with police in the US in an effort to stop thieves who steal parcels left outside homes.
Officers in New Jersey are planting dummy boxes fitted with GPS trackers, coupled with hidden doorbell cameras, at homes around the city of Jersey.
The homes selected for the experiment were chosen using the city’s own crime statistics combined with mapping data of theft locations supplied by Amazon.
One box was stolen three minutes after it was “delivered”.
On coming across again a couple of days later I’m more inclined to think how depressing it must be – having to deal with the scrotes who do this kind of thing.
