 A WOMAN caught a thief on camera stealing an Amazon box full of poo from her doorstep.

Laura Pringle carried out the dirty protest after repeatedly having parcels stolen from her porch over a three-year period from her home in Hamilton, Canada.

As a prank, Laura filled an empty box with cat poo and put it on her doorstep to see if the thief would take it.

Much to her amusement, the package was taken within 40 minutes with the porch pirate seemingly unaware of the smelly present inside.

Laura told CHCH: “I just happened to be cleaning the cat litter and I thought well this would work and so I just threw it in and off I went.

“Little did I know that it would take 40 minutes for someone to pick it up.”

Laura lives on a busy main road and has had several packages stolen in the three years she has lived at the property.

She instructs Amazon delivery drivers to ring her video doorbell when they deliver a parcel, but some fail to do so.

“A couple of the couriers that Amazon uses almost never read the label, so that results in my packages being stolen fairly often,” the prankster told Narcity.

It wasn’t a case of “poo done it” as Laura captured the reported theft on video, claiming it’s not the first time the suspect has stolen in the area.

Social media users praised Laura for the hilarious decoy while some called for her to go further.

One said: “Do it with a box of spiders, scorpions and those damn palmetto bug flying cockroaches. They’ll open a box full of the creepiest of crawlies battle royaling it who suddenly see the freedom of an open box (sic).”

Another said: “It brings me a lot of pleasure thinking about that person getting excited about the heavy box and ripping it open to find a giant amount of cat feces. It’s satisfying (sic).”

A third commented: “Good s***”, while another social media user said Laura should’ve added glitter to the parcel.

A smelly surprise was awaiting the thief when he opened the box
