California Neighborhood Flooded With Mystery Uber Eats Deliveries
March 20-- For the last three weeks, homeowners on Range View Avenue in the Los Angeles suburb of Highland Park have been surprised by large volumes of unexpected food deliveries.
Uber Eats Packages
Some are receiving ten to forty Uber Eats packages a day, coming from a range of fast-food establishments such as McDonald's, Taco Bell, and Starbucks.
The residents said the deliveries show up at all hours of the day and night.
What Residents Had To Say
"When it became too much food at once, we'd try to find places to donate it or give it away," local man William Neal told KTLA-TV.
Residents were perplexed by the unexpected orders made using pre-paid payment methods. Some attempted to contact the provided phone numbers, yet all of them had been disconnected.
An official at Uber, the delivery service’s parent firm, noted that they are attempting to pinpoint the cause of the surprise orders. Meanwhile, those in the vicinity reported no idea as to why these anonymous transactions have occurred.
"I don't think anybody has seen it as anything sinister -- it's just varying degrees of annoyance," Neal told the Los Angeles Times.
