PARMA, Ohio (WJW) — The holiday season is here, and so are thieves waiting to steal your gifts before you can even put them under the Christmas tree. One Northeast Ohio city is warning potential porch pirates that the boxes they steal might be a 'bait package' planted by the police. This is the second year for Parma's Project STOP, an acronym for 'Stop Theft Of Packages.' 'If you want to steal packages in Parma, I suggest you go to another city, don't come to Parma because we're watching,' said Parma Sgt.
