A woman from Colorado decided to fight back against porch pirates by leaving out Amazon boxes filled with trash.
Christine Hyatt told KKTV in Colorado Springs how thieves have stolen at least 20 packages from her porch and so she decided to get creative.
“We forgot to set our trash out for Thanksgiving, so we were overflowing with trash,” she revealed. “I’ve had packages stolen and I went, ‘You know what? I have extra boxes — let’s see if someone will take our trash!'”
Hyatt reported that the thieves swiped her daughter’s diabetes medication.
“She can’t afford to have her own medication stolen just because people are jerks,” Hyatt said. “This is my way of fighting back.”
Hyatt plans to pack her next package with cigarette butts, kitty litter and fast-food wrappers.
“My daughter told me that it was gross,” Hyatt said. “But they deserve it.”
