DC woman gets stinky revenge on package thief with help from dogs

WASHINGTON -- Revenge was sweet, but a little stinky, for a Washington D.C. woman who was victimized by package thieves on several occasions.

The suspects were captured on surveillance video stealing packages from Andrea Hutzler's front porch. She grew so tired of the thefts that she decided to take matters into her own hands - with some help from her dogs.

"I have a shovel that I use to pick up their dog poo, so instead of just shoveling it into a garbage bag, I shoveled it into a box," Hutzler said.

She placed the package on her front porch and, sure enough, a thief came by and took it.

Unfortunately she didn't get to see the look on the man's face when he opened the box, but she did give the surveillance tape to police, who are now searching for the man.
