Thieves kept stealing Jaireme Barrow’s Jeep Wrangler parts right off his front porch, so the Tacoma, Washington native fought back by building a trap that sets off a 12-gauge shotgun blank and scares the living bejesus out of idiot burglars. Don’t worry, it won’t hurt anyone, but it’s the last noise any would-be thief wants to hear.
(Note: We do not encourage you to do this. Someone could get hurt.)
I chatted with Barrow over Facebook, and he told me he’s caught package-snatchers in the act four times with his video camera, and that he just “wanted to even the playing field.”
