TACOMA, Wash. - More mail thieves come out during the holiday season, but a Tacoma man has introduced a device that could keep them from stealing.

The purpose of the device, called the blank box, is to scare away people who try to grab packages from the front porch.

Inventor Jaireme Barrow says the blank box makes a very loud popping noise. The device is now selling, turning into a big business just a year after Barrow started using his invention.
