Porch piracy has reached a fever pitch in the U.S., where 1.7 million delivered packages are stolen every day.  The staggering number, revealed in a study by the New York Times, represents more than $25 million in lost goods.

New York City has approximately 90,000 deliveries disappear every day.  By comparison, the Denver Police Department reports about 700 incidents a year. In Washington D.C. 1,846 incidents were reported in mid-November which means the number will be a lot higher by the time the holiday season is over.

The number marks a dramatic increase from 2018 when 1,546 thefts were documented for the entire year.
