LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville has been home to nearly 250 reported mail thefts this year, according to LMPD data. Normally, it ends with stolen gifts or money lost. But not in Germantown, where a Louisville postal carrier drove after a suspected porch pirate and got the package back.
“My mail carrier is the bomb,” Charlene Morris. Others called her a “pillar in the community,” or simply, “the best.”
On Friday, she saw a woman take a package off of Kristina Inclan’s porch. Inclan, a nurse, was napping between shifts. So, when her mail carrier rang her doorbell, she didn’t respond.
“Then Audrey, the mail lady, rang the doorbell and was like, ‘a lady just stole a package off of Christina’s porch!'” Inclan’s neighbor Amy Gaines said.
Then, the chase began.
