Now that Louisiana has been identified as one of the nation's hottest spots for porch pirates, I think it's high-time we take the fight back to those scallywags.
Protecting Our Precious Packages from Porch Pirates Isn't Easy
The whole allure of online shopping is the fact that we don't have to physically be there for 90% of the transaction. You can shop from your office, your living room, or really anywhere you have your phone.
