Homeowner Sets Up Booby Trap for Porch Pirates Stealing Packages
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.
