‘I was shocked’: Chesterfield resident warns against porch pirates after falling victim

Porch pirates have struck again, this time in a North Chesterfield neighborhood — and the victim is warning others to protect their purchases. 8News spoke with James Chenault, who said he wanted to get ahead of his holiday shopping and ordered a gift online. Not long after Chenault’s delivery made it to the front steps of his home, it was swiped away by a pair of porch pirates. “I was shocked, I tell you. We’ve been here for 28 years and I always see on TV other areas where packages are being stolen, but I never thought they would happen in this neighborhood. But lo and behold, here it comes,” he said.
