This is one way to stop Holiday package thefts!

Package theft is a huge problem this time of year, but one Washington state man has come up with a way to get back at thieves -- with a bang. Jaireme Barrow would review his surveillance footage and repeatedly see thieves swiping packages off his front porch while he wasn't home. He kept calling the police, but nothing was ever done to find the porch pirates, so he came up with his own explosive idea. Barrow created the Blank Box. It's an empty box loaded with 12-gauge shotgun blanks that are fired when the package is lifted.
