Cat Poop Sting Nabs Porch Pirate

Porch Pirate Man With Red Bandana Steals Packages MS

A woman tired of package thieves said she left a box of poop on her front porch - and it was stolen within 40 minutes. Laurie Pringle of Hamilton, Ontario has had several packages disappear during the past 3 years, so she set out a bait package filled with cat poop. "I live on a very busy downtown street. I've had a number of packages stolen in the three years I've lived here," Pringle said. "As a result I have a very clear label for all my Amazon packages, indicating that they should ring my video doorbell. A couple of the couriers that Amazon uses almost never read the label, so that results in my packages being stolen fairly often," she said.

The box of poop was stolen within 40 minutes. The homeowner said she captured the theft on video and a neighbor identified the culprit as the same person who had recently swiped a package from their porch.
