Tis' the season for nonstop deliveries, and today, the New Orleans Police Department put out a video, warning residents about thieves playing Grinch and stealing your packages.

With so many folks doing their holiday shopping online, it means more deliveries to homes across the New Orleans area, than ever before.

Unfortunately, the crooks have figured that out and it could mean packages will vanish from your front door. 

NOPD officer Juan Barnes narrates a video with tips to ensure your holiday packages don't disappear.

''Unfortunately package thieves are out there stealing packages before residents return home from work,'' Barnes said.

Barnes says make prior arrangements with the shipper.

''Have the packages delivered to your work place, or to a family member, friend, or neighbor who is home during the day to accept the delivery,'' said Barnes.

Another tip is to require a signature on upon delivery.
