SHAMOKIN, Pa. (CBS) — A northeastern Pennsylvania man gave a porch pirate a gift he will never forget and a surveillance camera got it all. Robert Lynch left boxes filled with kitty litter and feces on his porch in Shamokin and the boxes were stolen.
He got a good look at the thief thanks to recently installed cameras.
“When I first saw it I couldn’t believe that somebody would take that but then I laughed about it,” said Lynch. “If I was on a bus and sitting by that person and they’d open this box, I mean, the smell is unbelievable.”
Lynch has also started a trend.
His neighbors are now filling boxes with garbage and seeing if thieves will take them off their porch.
