Some Missourians using pet poop to thwart porch pirates

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.
