It’s gives me (and I’m sure all of you too), a warm and fuzzy feeling deep down inside to see a thief get their just rewards. Watch the video below, as a homeowner exacts revenge on package thieves with a booby trap that fires shotgun blanks. A fed-up driver has engineered an ingenious “shotgun” trap in an effort to deter thieves who steal packages from front porches.
Jaireme Barrow, from Tacoma, Washington, was becoming increasingly irritated with people nicking his expensive Jeep parts and vowed to “even the playing field”.Using 12-gauge shotgun blanks, fishing line, bricks, a wooden box, an aluminium carrying vessel for the blanks, a small plate and a cardboard box he was able to make a very effective deterrent.
If it were me, I would have put some yellow, or red paint in the trap, that way you could identify the thieves easier.
