When the toy that Mark Riedesel had ordered for his cat never arrived, he ordered a replacement. When that package also went missing, Mark planted an empty box as bait with a camera aimed at it.

Hours later the camera recorded footage of a woman in a pink hoodie walking up to the porch and rifling through the box. Once she confirmed that it was empty she quickly left. Riedesel then filed a report with the Davenport Police Department in an attempt to stop future "porch pirates" from stealing packages.

"It's just a cat toy, not a lot of money, but still. I think it's terrible. People just walking around stealing stuff. It's not right."


A man in Las Vegas had enough of these package thieves and decided to get revenge. He also planted a box on his porch, but his wasn't empty. It was filled with dog poop.
