West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- West Fargo Police are warning holiday shoppers to track their packages after at least two were stolen.

At least two people had packages taken from their doorsteps Wednesday. One victim found an empty UPS box addressed to one of her neighbors. A package she was expecting was also missing.

Police say it is a crime of opportunity, particularly during the holidays when there are many deliveries.

Mike Reitan with the West Fargo Police Department says, "We have at least two victims, it's possible that there were other victims in the community that aren't aware that the package was already delivered and has been taken."

Having someone home or delivering packages to a business during open hours can prevent these thefts.
