The Tuscaloosa Country Sheriff's Office is asking the community for help identifying a man that has stolen packages from the front porch of a home just south of Tuscaloosa.

According to the the TCSO Facebook page, the packages were stolen from a house in the Fields Crossing subdivision, which is off Old Marion Road near Hillcrest High School.

The holidays seem to bring out more thieves that take advantage of the gift-givers. Police have provided these tips for sending and receiving deliveries:

- Make sure to require a signature on all package deliveries.
- Write specific instructions for the delivery company on where to leave your package, and also keep in mind that you can have your packages delivered to you at work.
- One final option is to ask the shipping company to hold your package for customer pick-up at their local facility.

If anyone has information regarding this person or this case, they are encouraged to call the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office at 205-464-8672.
