TAMPA, Fla. (WFTS/CNN) – A Florida baby helped her family provide a gift that’s way worse than coal in a stocking.
Nine-month-old Nora is the star of the show in the Saleep household. She’s also the reason porch pirates might think twice from now on.
Nora’s parents, Sharly and Jacky Saleep, said they decided to take matters into their own hands after they noticed packages missing.
They installed a surveillance camera, then put out a decoy package filled with three-day-old dirty diapers.
“I wanted them to get a taste of their own medicine,” Sharly Saleep said.
The couple said they believe someone took the package a few hours after they placed it outside. Their surveillance camera captured someone run up to the front door and quickly run away.
The family also filed a report with the Tampa Police Department.
“Whoever these porch pirates were, they fell for it,” said Tampa Police Officer Sarah Michelson.
