Q: A cargo van pulled into our drive one day recently. I glanced out the window and saw that it had “Amazon” in large letters on the windshield. A woman in a neon yellow vest got out and came onto the front porch. She went to the front door, did not ring the bell and returned to the van.
My wife opened the door and there was nothing there. The van was backing out of the drive and my wife signaled for her to stop and went to talk to her. She asked her if she had left anything. The woman replied that she had left a large envelope in our garage. Our garage door was closed and can only be opened electronically.

We have no clue if she was casing the house or what she may have been doing. We called the police immediately and an officer took a report. He said that this was the first time something like this had been reported but thanked us for calling and told us that they will be on the lookout going forward.
