YouTuber Rigs Glitter and Fart-Spray Bomb to Catch Porch Pirates

“Revenge is a dish best served fabulously,” according to Mark Roberson.

The former NASA engineer and YouTube personality is truly serving it up.

He used his engineering skills to create a device that would make a bomb of glitter explode and a stink bomb go off on people who steal the phony packages.

It took him 6 months to create, and the results are like a Christmas gift.

The reactions are captured on cameras from phones hidden in the device, and many people can’t even wait to get home to open the box. The glitter starts flying around the 4:00 minute mark of the video.

    Did nobody get arrested as a result? I mean, you have video of people opening the stolen package in their home, and GPS data, so why not?

    Too bad that its not tossing out an incendiary and lighting it on fire burning everything in 5′ radius. Package thieves deserve far worse than being pranked.

    glad I live out in the country…. I know my neighbors anyone strange walking by or stopping gets checked out

    Although it’s entertaining, how many people could actually build one of these themselves, or fork over the money to buy one? I’m sure they’re not cheap. No, the solution to getting rid of ‘porch piracy’ is to classify it as it really is – BURGLARY AND HOME INVASION, where the homeowner has the right to shoot the vermin as long as they’re still on the property. I’m sure activity like that would greatly diminish once a few of them get shot.
