What is a Porch Pirate?

A Porch Pirate is the name given to criminals that steal packages on people’s porch. They’ve been known to follow around UPS, FedEx and USPS trucks about a block or two behind. After a package is delivered, they will simply grab your package off the porch. YouTube is filled with videos like this one:
