One man was so sick of thieves stealing packages from his porch that he deiced to take matters into his own hands.

His method to combat the thieves is quite unique to say the least.

The Tacoma, Washington man told Inside Edition that he was so tired of seeing all the thefts on his home security camera that he "booby trapped" a package and left it for the would be bandits. Basically, he put a 12-gauge blank shotgun shell in the box, figuring it would give the thieves quite a fright.

It doesn't actually hurt anyone, it's just really loud.

The man claims that the blast has gone off fifteen times since he started using it. When skeptics question why his house has been targeted so many times...

My porch...sticks out like a sore thumb.

Well, okay. He claims the videos he loaded to YouTube are the real deal. Take a look and be the judge yourself.
