“The big message for this thief is we're not going to give up till we get you because I want the message to be clear in Williamson County. We're coming up on Christmas and the holidays we're going to be very proactive in Williamson County about this we're going to be putting all resources starting now,” said Robert Chody the Williamson county sheriff.

Package theft isn't the only problem which recently popped up in the area.
“There's definitely been an increase within the last year of criminal activity in the neighborhood and that's concerning to us,” said Wahl.
Earlier this month there were reports of several homes being broken into. “We are looking into that too we knew about it before the package theft and we already started a processes before that the process and plan has increased since the package theft,” said Sheriff Chody, “This wouldn't be the time to be messing around in Williamson County.”
The sheriff's office will be increasing enforcement and resources as we head into the holidays.
