For the past couple holiday seasons people sharing surveillance footage of Christmas present package thefts has been a hot topic. Whether on local television news or viral Facebook videos from upset homeowners footage of thieves from all walks of lives loading their cars with stolen Amazon packages sadly becoming normal. Jaireme Barrow in the video below explains how he plans to stop this.
From Q13 Fox TV Seattle:
TACOMA, Wash. — When it comes to catching package thieves, some homeowners use surveillance cameras. But Jaireme Barrow wants to scare them away so they never come back.
So about a year ago he invented something he calls “The Blank Box” — and he says business is booming.
The package — an empty booby-trapped box — is left on a porch. But it’s rigged with fishing wire and a 12-gauge shotgun blank that goes off.
