Huntersville police are warning residents of increased thefts this holiday season, particularly of packages left outside.

"With the holiday shopping season upon us be aware of delivery dates and remove packages from your porch as quickly as possible," the police department said on their Facebook page.

Police said if you're not home, have a neighbor retrieve your items if possible. 

"Don't let the Grinch steal your holiday cheer. If you see suspicious activity please call 911," the department said.
