LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Las Vegas man put a stinky surprise in a bait package to help get rid of a pair of mail thieves.

He packed it with dog poop.

Eric Snow decided to fight back after his neighborhood was targeted by thieves recently. He put out a bait package, containing what he calls "reprocessed dog chow" from his 95-pound German Shepherd.

Two men were caught on surveillance cameras taking the bait.

"They probably wouldn't enjoy it as much as we enjoyed doing it, you know," Snow said.

Neighbors say they hope the unpleasant package will help deter the thieves.
