KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KAKE) -

Kansas City residents are fighting back against porch pirates in a unique and smelly way.

WDAF reports neighbors are filling empty packages with dog and cat poop and other items hoping to "raise a stink" against the criminals.

“I have two shoe boxes full of poo!” Anna Nedeau told the Fox affiliate in KC. “Kind of fight back in a passive aggressive way.”

She said she's tired of hearing about packages being stolen from porches, so she and some of her neighbors took it upon themselves to leave packages for thieves that they hope they'll steal.

“Use poop, and cat poo, and poo poo poo!” Nedeau said. “I put the poo in a nice Christmas wrap with ribbons and a little card."

Nedeau said she knows people in the Volker, West Plaza and Hyde Park neighborhoods participating, and she tells people at her gym to do it, too.

Nedeau has a message for those having problems with package thieves, : “Wrap it up, easy as pie!”

She also has a message for the thieves coming for her boxes.

“I hope you like old lady panties and cat food cans because that's what you`re gonna get for Christmas!” she said.
