lol @ us paying 7-figures for a house and being told to have packages delivered to a neighbor or at work. I really like it here and am glad to not have to worry much about violent crime, but the petty crime here really affects QOL.

Get your packages delivered to work, and you never have to worry. I'm happy they nabbed this guy, though!

How you going to do that when it specifies that delivers need to be made to the address on your credit card?
