Homeowner Sets Up Booby Trap for Porch Pirates Stealing Packages

December 14, 2017

One homeowner says he was so fed up with thieves taking packages from his front porch, he rigged a box that detonates when it's lifted. Jaireme Barrow of Tacoma, Wash., told Inside Edition his security cameras have caught a wave of would-be thieves getting the fright of their lives. “It's completely harmless, it's just a really loud noise,” he said. He loaded the box with 12 gauge blank shotgun shells, and the device has gone off about 15 times since he created it.
