WATCH - Porch Pirate Deterent

December 20, 2017

This time of year especially, package thieves are hard at work. But a guy just up I-5 in Washington has an idea that *should* keep thieves away. I  say *should* because we all know criminals fall into my Rule #1 & Rule #2 category. Rule #1 - Everyone's an idiot. Well, Jaireme Barrow of Washington got an idea after his packages kept getting pilfered and the police weren't any help. He said, "I was thinking, how could I scare them and make them drop my package and then never come to my front porch again. And I thought, ‘Getting shot at is scary. That’ll make them think twice.'" And so far it's worked. Barrow has captured surveillance videos of would-be thieves attempting to steal the Blank Box and then dropping it when the shots are fired. He's now looking to patent his creation and sell each box. 

Check out the video of his creation at work. Seems to work well!
