The online store planted the dummy parcels at random in a ploy to catch delivery drivers that steal customer packages.

The thief-detecting strategy was ordered from Amazon’s headquarters in Seattle as a response to overwhelming reports of package thefts.

Drivers are supposed to scan every package in their truck. The labels on the fake packages were intentionally rigged to bring up an error message when scanned.
