We’ve heard numerous reports in the media about porch package thieves, but we had not known of that happening here in Jasper until now.

Officer Mike Peters of the Jasper Police Department filed a report on Wednesday after Mykia Johnson, of #5 Suncrest Circle, reported that a package had been stolen from her porch.

Johnson told police that she had ordered an item online and it had been delivered to her porch by UPS. However, she discovered that someone stole the package.

Police say the case remains under investigation.
