Didn't get your Amazon package yet? Train tracks blanketed with empty boxes; thieves loot cargo trains | VIDEO

America, Jan 15: Thieves have been raiding cargo containers aboard train nearing downtown Los Angeles for months, taking Amazon packages belonging to people across the country and leaving the tracks blanketed with discarded boxes.

The packages on the train are from retailers including Amazon, REI and others reported. The sea of debris left behind includes items that the thieves apparently didn’t think were valuable enough to take.

While cameras were on the spot one person running off with a container used to hold small packages, and a Union Pacific railroad police officer was spotted pursuing two other people who were apparently going through packages.

This is not the first time but the scene was the same in November when NBC4 showed thousands of boxes discarded along the tracks lined with homeless encampments northeast of downtown in the Lincoln Park area.
