NEW ORLEANS -- On at least two occasions this month, someone has targeted the Uptown area to steal packages off of people's porches.  The cases are the latest ones to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

Police around the country are warning people that more package thefts are probably on the way.  In fact, November 28 is National Package Protection Day, a day that aims to get people to take precautions when it comes to the packages that are delivered to their homes.

In New Orleans, the NOPD released security camera footage of a theft that happened on November 15 at about noon and another that happened on November 20 at about 5:15 in the evening.

In both cases, a man is seen arriving at a home on a bicycle and walking toward the front door.  Also in each case, the man grabs at least one package and puts it inside of a bag then leaves on the bike.

So far, police are not connecting the cases, and it doesn't appear from the surveillance footage that the same bicycle is used in each case.

We profiled one of the cases previously on the Wheel of Justice, and our report included some tips to help protect the packages that are delivered to your home this holiday season.  Click here to read the report.

To see the surveillance footage from both cases, click on the video button at the top of this page.

If you can help police solve either case, call CrimeStoppers.  You don't have to reveal your name or testify in court, and you could be eligible for a cash reward.

So far, 389 people have been booked after their cases rolled on the Wheel of Justice.
