A neighborhood in Austin has been struggling lately with porch pirates.

Multiple houses on the block have had packages stolen from their front porches, and one couple had finally had enough.

They filled some empty boxes with dirty diapers, and left them for the porch pirates to snag, which they did.

Unfortunately, the porch pirates retaliated.

They came back to the home, SMEARED the dirty diapers onto the door, and then spread cow manure all over the front porch and the cars in the driveway.

Homeowners told KXAN it’s the “same car, same people” lifting packages off their porches, and it’s always a black Chevy Suburban with no plates.

The Austin Police Department have set up a patrol in the area, and are still investigating the case.

The spread of the manure could hit the point of criminal mischief.
