LAS VEGAS — A Nevada homeowner recently taught some pesky thieves a lesson with a disgusting delivery.

Eric Bardo told KTNV that he had just moved to the neighborhood when packages began disappearing off of his front porch.

He decided to install a home security system to scare off the thieves, but when that didn’t work, Bardo decided to get revenge.

Bardo decided to use his dog’s poop to teach the thieves a stinky lesson.

“One day I kind of just thought about cleaning up the poop and putting it in a box and that’s what I did,” Bardo told KTNV.

His surveillance camera captured video of the thieves taking his special delivery.

Bardo said he didn’t call police, but hopes the boys have learned their lesson.

“I didn’t want to call them and say, ‘Somebody stole a box of poop off of my front porch,” Bardo told KFOR.
