Well, according to finder.com, MEN are FAR more likely (500 x more likely!) to steal things off your front porch.

Millenials experience more package theft than any other age group.

Not too long ago, there was a porch pirate busted in Northport, Alabama.

Miss Hall, according to TPD, had been doing this for many months.
