Missing Packages?

We've had two days this week where packages have gone missing from our front porch. Is anyone in NE experiencing similar issues? I'm fairly certain it's theft because one time the package came from UPS and the other was FedEx. Seems fishy. My first question is if anyone else had had similar experiences in NE Oak Park lately? Also, it looks like a number of the 7-Elevens in the area are Amazon Lock Box locations. Has anyone used this delivery option before? See More
