UPS drivers watch closely to stop ‘porch pirates’ - WWLP The holidays are one of the busiest times for the United Parcel Service. Keith Pickens would know. He’s delivered packages for UPS for the past 16 years. He works hard to keep them from being stolen. “You try to secure the package more, so it’s not visible from the street … so nobody can see it. And so when the customer comes out it’s not even blocking them from their door,” Pickens said. And it’s not just about hiding the boxes. These driver’s watch everything around them. Since most work the same areas all the time, they know when something’s out of place.
