A woman has revealed how she filled a box with poo, kept it at her doorstep and to her surprise, it was stolen within 40 mins.
Laurie Pringle, who resides in Hamilton, Canada, decided to take matters into her own hands after she has been robbed of delivery packages multiple times.
She decided to fill an empty cardboard box with the remains from a cat litter tray and put it on her doorstep in a bid to catch the culprit.
Surprisingly, the parcel was taken from her doorstep within 40 minutes by someone who was caught on Laurie’s front door Ring camera.
Speaking to CHCH, Laurie said: “I just happened to be cleaning the cat litter and I thought well this would work and so I just threw it in and off I went. Little did I know that it would take 40 minutes for someone to pick it up.”
Laurie explained how she leaves instructions for Amazon delivery staff to ring her video doorbell when they deliver a parcel but some don’t do this.
Speaking to Narcity, she added: “I live on a very busy downtown street. My front door pretty much opens out onto the sidewalk. I’ve had a number of packages stolen in the three years I’ve lived here.
“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.”
