Unmarked vans ‘stealing’ or delivering packages? | Letter to the editor

I few weeks ago I noticed an influx of unmarked white vans in our neighborhood.

The drivers appear to be looking closely at houses and driving slowly. When I approached one of the van drivers, she said they are delivering for Amazon (no company identification on van).

More recently, I’ve noticed the vans are dirty, scratched, dinged, and the drivers are no longer driving slowly. It would be nice if these subcontractors for Amazon had vans with company names and ID numbers so we could call and complain as they race through our neighborhoods.

Also, with Amazon packages disappearing from our porches, it would be nice if we could tell whether the van was picking up (aka stealing) or dropping off what we ordered.

Jan Millard,
