Are your UPS deliveries safe?

SACRAMENTO, CA - 'Tis the season for crime as local thieves seem to be snatching up gifts from some doorsteps as fast as UPS can deliver. Karen Deering knows this as she's been a victim of the crime.

She shops online for holiday gifts. She's home all day and knows when the delivery person will arrive at her door.

"I know when the UPS driver gets here because the dog starts barking," said Deering.

Before she can makes it to the door to get her highly anticipated packages, she says someone gets to them first.

"I think someone is riding on a bike behind the drivers," Deering said.

Deering said two packages have been stolen from her front porch. She said she wants the delivery driver to ring the door bell. "It will give me a chance to answer the door. There's a lot of creeps watching the door," said Deering.

The most expensive gift she had stolen was a Kindle.

There will be no runoff if a candidate wins more than 50 percent
