Package thief tricked by homeowner, steals poop

- You've probably seen countless stories about a Grinch swiping valuables from doorsteps, but in Las Vegas, one man decided to fight back with a special delivery to teach a repeat package thief a lesson.

Victor "The Snakemann" is no stranger to stolen packages. He's had four snatched from his current address. He even has a sign telling deliverers not to leave anything outside, but that didn't stop one woman.

As he watched his home surveillance video of one woman, he knew what she was up to. Luckily for him, he was ready to catch a thief in the act. 

"I'm sitting here watching her and I'm thinking I could go out and scare the crap out of her, but nahhh..." Victor explained. 

Instead, he set a little trap to let the offender know her scam was over.

"I had a pile of dog poop in my backyard one day and I'm like, 'I should just box this up and see if someone wants to steal it.' So I guess she wanted my poop more than I did,"Victor said.

Looks like this package thief will learn a pretty stinky lesson about stealing, but it could be worse for her. 

"It's a federal offense to steal mail off of a doorstep," Victor explained.
