Occurred on December 1, 2017 / Tacoma, Washington, USA "Package theft has become an epidemic, and I was tired of watching my packages being stolen. I made a safe and effective device to deliver a loud reminder to leave my packages alone. Hopefully it will make them pick up a different line of work."
