KANSAS CITY, MO - The holiday season means plenty of packages are being delivered to homes. That means an uptick in delivery thefts.
Some Missouri residents are fighting back in a rather smelly way.
People in Kansas City are filling empty packages with dog and cat waste in hopes of raising a stink with criminals. They're hoping porch pirates will take the bait and learn a lesson.
According to a recent survey more than half of Americans say they know someone who's had a package stolen from outside their home. 30 percent say they've experienced it themselves.
