Three delivery truck drivers in Metro Vancouver are facing possible charges for allegedly stealing packages and trying to sell the contents online.

Mounties say the cases of porch piracy involved drivers making deliveries for the online retailer Amazon between September and late November.

Police say the company proactively identified the possible thefts and notified RCMP in Burnaby, B.C., prompting officers to search the suspects’ homes, where they found as many as 32 stolen packages at one location.

The stolen items ranged from a $35 Apple AirTag tracking device to a men’s watch valued at more than $600.


Police say the three men in their 20s were arrested and the RCMP have sent details to the BC Prosecution Service for consideration of charges.

They say there is nothing to indicate the cases are linked at this stage of the investigation.
