PURCELLVILLE, Va. November 8, 2019 — With the holiday season rapidly approaching and many people receiving an increased number of package deliveries, the Purcellville Police Department would like to remind residents to be aware of possible package thefts and provide some prevention tips. Most thieves are on the hunt for easy targets, and might just notice an attractive package and try to snatch it.
