Porch pirates have struck local homes in the Wabash Valley

We told you about "porch pirates" this week..

Just a few days after our report... police say they already stole packages in a local neighborhood.

There have been reports of missing packages from the idle creek area.

That's where we find news 10's jordan kudisch live this morning.

She has more on what she has more on what police are saying about the thefts.

/// it took these pirates no time to start stealing packages from these homes.

So far... two families were hit..

And 4-packages were stolen as a result.

Neighbors took to facebook to share their concerns.

You can see some of the comments right there on your screen.

They say the packages were taken from "golf bag lane" and "ironwood lane."

Luckily for one family... it was just christmas socks.

However, it could be something bigger the something bigger the next time around.

I spoke with sgt.

Matt ames with the indiana state police.

He actually lives in this residental area..

And says this is just one neighborhood that has shared the issues with theft... there could be several others that take the "hit" as long as the pirates are out and about.

"unfortunately the residence in which i live we have several police officers, state and local police officers and it's already happened in my neighborhood i reside in.

What we ask for is for people to come together as a community looking for these porch pirates so we can put a stop to it."

Indiana state police want you to report any suspicious activity.

So if you see something...say something.
