Watch| As we approach the holidays, an estimated one-billion packages are expected to be delivered to homes across the United States. Meanwhile, thieves are lurking to steal goods left at your doorstep. One Las Vegas, Nevada neighborhood has fought back in a unique way.
We decided to put out the bait package.
“It’s just gotten to the point it’s getting worse,” said resident Eric Snow, whose neighborhood has been targeted by thieves in recent weeks. The 38-year Army veteran is now taking matters into his own hands.
Snow’s surveillance cameras caught two men driving up in a green car Saturday afternoon to steal the bait package. The bait package was filled with a pungent package from Snow’s 95-pound German Shepherd named Heidi.
“Stuffed it full of reprocessed dog chow,” said Snow, avoiding the term dog poop altogether. “I thought it was hilarious,” said neighbor Sandra Goodwin. “Hopefully these people will realize that we're tired of them.”
All humor aside, the folks living in the Las Vegas neighborhood hope the unpleasant package will help deter thieves or at least make them think twice about returning to rip them off.
This German Shepherd, Heidi helped provided a pungent package for thieves.
