Jaireme Barrow was fed up with low-life criminals stealing packages off his porch, so he set out to do something about it.
The 34-year-old inventor created a booby trapped package which fires off a black shotgun shell when his packages are lifted, and as the videos he uploaded to his YouTube show, it's working like a charm.
Necessity is the mother of invention.
From the Washington Post:
"I was thinking, how could I scare them and make them drop my package and then never come to my front porch again," Barrow told The Washington Post. "And I thought, 'Getting shot at is scary. That'll make them think twice.' "
...And what of litigious would-be criminals tempted to sue after taking a stumble down porch stairs?The Tacoma Police, who refuse to arrest any of the criminals he's caught on video stealing his packages, are claiming the device is illegal.
“Even though it’s a blank, the way the device is made is actually illegal,” said Loretta Cool, a police spokeswoman. Barrow could also be held liable if someone gets hurt on his property during or after an explosion, she said.Such claims are not stopping Barrow, you can buy a single blank box on his website for $59.99 or a "double shot" for $84.99.
