"Both sound silly, in hindsight, but it's more the principal that somebody is out here and brazen enough to go up to somebody's house in broad daylight,"

SKINNER!

I agree, this really makes no sense. First off, what kind of plebe orders a $4000 painting? You might as well wipe your ass with that investment. I mean, the galleries deliver anything for free over $100,000. Second, you have the steaks delivered fresh to the servants' quarters, not yours, and not by UPS, you have them airmailed overnight from the Kobe or Matsusaka region.

This whole incident sounds preposterous.

I bet they were Trump steaks

Surveillance video from the home near E. 15th and I-35 shows a white man get out of a metallic gray or silver BMW at around 5:00 pm Tuesday.
"He pulled up, walks up to the porch, grabs the box -- which happened to be a painting -- and the box of steaks, put it in his car and drove off," said Edmond Police Department spokeswoman Jenny Wagnon.



Yeah, these guys just follow the UPS guy on his route through residential neighbourhoods - or they get a call from the driver himself. Always pay for deliver with sig. Always.

Remember when UPS or FedEx actually had to get a signature when it was requested... good times good times.

Probably a painting of Trump too. Paid for with charity money.

UPS may had no directive to leave them on the front porch... I've had several deliveries from them marked "signature required" and they were still left in front of my door. The drivers are probably betting that the recipient will be happy enough not to have gone to the depot not to report it.
 
2017-09-14 11:03:48 AM  
It says it was a custom painting. I hope that thief now has a $4000 painting of a strangers family. Or something like this:

The thief drives a BMW X6?  Those things start at $60K.

And the thief, who drives a BMW X6, drives into a neighborhood, into the back of a cul-de-sac, says "ooh, this house looks like it might have something really expensive on the doorstep", and goes and steals it???

And he couldn't even close the back door, do it's not like he could get very far.  Maybe there's more to the story?

You'll spend $4K for a painting... and 20 bucks on a low-res security camera that can't resolve a face or a license plate?

I ordered a $13 TV wall mount.  I got a text from UPS stating, "sorry, no one was around to accept the package, and there was no place secure to leave it!  We left it at the local post office!"

I live in a cabin in the woods, I have no neighbors to steal things, I'm retired and am home all day, I have a covered front porch, I lent my car to someone this week.  I sent them a sternly worded email about lying liar delivery companies who seem to think it's sufficient to deliver a package within ten miles of me and think that's sufficient.
 
2017-09-14 11:09:33 AM  
they seem to have a nasty habit of not even ringing the doorbell when they leave stuff either.  they must be in too much of a hurry to get to the next delivery to ensure that it is properly delivered

There was one time I ordered a TV.  I think it was maybe $800 or so.  It was shipped adult signature required, and I was home, but in the shower when they came so I missed them.  It was shipped in the TV box - not in a plain cardboard box or anything.  UPS stands the thing straight up in full view on my porch so anyone driving by would see a TV.  They put it behind a plant and I guess that was "hiding" it, but the box was 4' wide and the plant was tiny.

The thief was in a customized BMW stealing steaks from a rich housewife.

2017-09-14 11:14:41 AM  
Someone who is scamming, that is who.

And if you want good steaks, go to the local butcher, not order them on line.
If you want dog food, it is cheaper and available at the local pet store.
 
2017-09-14 11:15:44 AM  
I ordered a couple hundred dollars of wine one time for an event and I wasn't home when UPS delivered. Because a signature was required (cause alcohol) the UPS guy forged my name on it and left the package on the porch. Super secure.

Well, I see we're blaming the victim. That's nice.

Strongly worded email is not a euphemism for letter bomb... in this case.

UPS has degenerated to the point of being the worst.  Their drivers are lazy and hate making efforts.  I always cringe when I learn that someone I order from will only use UPS.  You can request a signature, but they won't ask for it.  Hell, they won't even ring doorbell/knock on door - they just drop it off on the porch, then lie in the delivery report.  They do treat businesses they deliver to better, but if your a residential, these unionized drivers just give you the virtual middle finger and try to avoid seeing the customer at all costs.

Even paying for "signature required" is useless. All that means is that the first random person the employee runs into can sign for the package. It doesn't have to be the recipient on the package.
 
2017-09-14 11:25:18 AM  
"It's when she pulled the surveillance video it became clear why the box of food and a custom piece of art weren't there."

Anyone else bothered by the fact that home surveillance now seems like a necessity?

Lived at the same address for over 30 years, never had any problem receiving packages. In recent months, though, forget it. Doesn't matter who the carrier is, they say they left in on my (enclosed) porch and I never saw it.

I came home one August afternoon to find a FedEx package on the front step- of a door with a clear, eye-level "Please Use Other Door" sign on it. Pick it up - surprise! It's labeled "Dry Ice Refrigerated Contents." Further surprise? It isn't for my address by my street number but a street two up from mine that doesn't even remotely resemble the name of my address.

Being a nice person, I put it in the car and drive over to said address. Guy's out front washing a screen window or something. Ask if so-and-so lives here - yes, that's his wife.

Long story finally ends: FedEx left the woman's delivery of insulin, a controlled substance, that needs to be kept refrigerated, on the wrong doorstep without a receiving signature, in 88 degree sunshine and humidity.

I hope like hell they called the supply company AND the FedEx depot and tore new arseholes on anyone even remotely involved.

Yeah, I can confirm UPS does not give a fark. I've had them leave freaking firearms (once it was one of the bright green/white Remington boxes with the huge font you can see from 100 feet away) just leaned up next to the door in full view of the street.

It was a thought experiment when I was a teenager and working retail.  There was an incident where some people in the mall got fired because they took misappropriated credit card details around to each others stores and bought a bunch of stuff.  They got caught, of course, because it was easy to identify who had been working at the stores in question when the transactions occurred.  I didn't have friends, so I wouldn't have had accomplices who would be willing / able to process the credit card transactions manually, so I considered how I would make use of misappropriated card details on my own, while also maximizing my chances of getting away with it.  Order online from the public PC at the library, have it delivered as described.

Never did it, of course.  Though I will admit to occasionally regretting that.

I've only had a problem with UPS once and it wasn't much of a problem.  The package was marked fragile and the driver lobbed it onto my porch.  Nothing broke.  And a good friend was the driver's supervisor lol.
 
2017-09-14 11:54:29 AM  
We had a month where we were losing deliveries on our doorstep but we had the unluckiest thieves ever.

They missed the days with new PC components from Newegg and a very nice camera lens.  Both those boxes were signature required but the UPS guy had zero farks to give.  Had they hit those 2 days they would have made off with $4k+ in goods.   Instead they got 24 rolls of Green Forest toilet paper, a case of oatmeal cookies and an "Ahh Bra".

Enjoy crossdressing on the pooper while eating cookies, loser.

Remember when your UPS and FedEx packages were actually delivered by FedEx or UPS instead of the female Russian postal worked that delivers packages to the wrong house and often weeks late that was the reason you switched from USPS to UPS/FedEx in the first damn place?
