WASHINGTON -- After thieves swiped packages off a couple's porch in Washington D.C. several times, they decided to get revenge.

The couple boxed up dog feces from their two dogs and left the package on their front porch.

Around 3 p.m. on Friday, surveillance footage captures a man walking in front of their house a few times before stealing the package. According to WJLA-TV, this was the third time a package had been stolen from the couple's yard since October.

Besides filling the package with dog feces, the couple moved their surveillance camera in an effort to get a better look at the person -- or persons -- stealing from them.

The couple showed police the video, which is now circulating online, and have faith that the man in the latest heist will be caught.
