Around the holidays, package deliveries increase exponentially, and unfortunately, so does looting. When his Las Vegas neighborhood fell victim to package thieves, 38-year Army veteran Eric Snow decided he wasn’t going to take their shit.
Wanting to send a strong message, he set a trap that the thieves would not forget: A box of “presents” from Heidi, his 95-pound German Shepherd.
“We decided to put out the bait package,” he told Bakersfield Now, adding, “I stuffed it full of reprocessed dog chow,” Snow said, craftily avoiding the word “poop” with a grin.
After setting the package outside, he waited in the house, camera at the ready. Not long after, two men arrived in a beat-up green sedan and hastily snatched the box right off Snow’s driveway.
“I thought it was hilarious,” neighbor Sandra Goodwin said. “Hopefully these people will realize that we're tired of them.”
President Donald Trump hit back at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday with a letter saying he was "sorry to inform" her that her trip to Brussels, Belgium and Afghanistan would be canceled due to the government shutdown, just one day after Pelosi proposed cancelling the State of the Union address for similar reasons.
