(DCSO) ROSEBURG, Ore. – Over the weekend, deputies took several reports of mail theft from residential mailboxes, including packages. On Sunday, December 9, 2019, around 9:30 am, while investigating the thefts, a deputy received a report of a female who was looking through mailboxes in the area of Doerner Road near Buffalo Lane. The deputy contacted 21 year-old Kayla Lee Alamprese of Roseburg and found her to be in possession of stolen mail and items. Alamprese was arrested and taken to the Douglas County Jail where she was lodged on 13 counts of Mail Theft. The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public of some crime prevention tips so their holidays aren’t spoiled. - Consider a residential locking mailbox or renting a post office box. - Check your mail daily. - If leaving the area, ask the postal service to hold your mail until you return. - Know when your packages will be arriving by monitoring tracking information available by the shipping company. - Ask your trusted neighbor to watch for the delivery of packages and to hold them until you return home. - If you are not home during the day, consider having your items delivered to your workplace or to a trusted neighbor. Some shipping companies also allow you to hold a package at their facility for pick-up. - Elect for in-store pickup, if available. - Require a signature to be obtained for the delivery to avoid the package being left on your doorstep. - Be vigilant in your neighborhood. If you witness suspicious vehicles or people following delivery trucks, call police. A good description and license plates are very helpful to law enforcement. - Install surveillance cameras around your home. The mere presence of cameras may deter a thief, but can also help law enforcement solve the crime. - If sending a package to someone, let them know it’s coming so they can be on the lookout.
