Thieves stealing food parcels...........................
« on: Monday 04 May 20 17:31 BST (UK) »
This may have been brought up before and I've missed it, sorry if that is the case.  :-\

Thieves stealing food parcels left on doorsteps of country’s most vulnerable people.
Thieves are swiping the lifeline parcels after they are placed outside the homes of those told not to leave the house – even to shop – because they are so at risk from coronavirus.

We have now had a few of these incidents in our area and it is disgusting. How low can people get ?
Hope they catch them.

Stay Safe

I find this disgusting to be honest, perhaps it is a good idea to knock when the parcel is delivered  and make sure it is accepted

There are some despicable people about, unfortunately they still operate as if there is no emergency. How can they take food from the vulnerable?
We`re having deliveries from local shops and they knock and wait at a safe distance to be sure we get the food.

They`ve all been wonderful.

I agree, despicable.  Our local hub have a Facebook page and quite often a food delivery has been left at the wrong address and people are trying to find the rightful owner.  Some have ended up at the food bank.
Why they cannot knock and wait for someone to answer the door is beyond me.

As I have said before, there are no depths to which these scumbags will not descend.

I agree dbree.

I could, like most be really nasty about these people but am containing  myself, it would be nice to think they need it more that the original recipient but I doubt that, it is still theft in my opinion
