HILLSBORO, Ore. -- (KRXI) -- A package thief got a stinky surprise after messing with the wrong mom in Hillsboro.
The mom, Angie Boliek, told KATU she was fed up after someone stole a package carrying her son's Christmas baby pajamas.
The child made his own contributions to her plan for retribution.
"It's the season for stealing, I guess," Boliek said Tuesday.
She and her husband are new parents of a mellow, 4-month-old named Ben.
"It's a really fun time and it's fun watching him explore the world," Boliek explained. "He just looked at Christmas lights the last week and just loved 'em."
She said it's a yearly tradition in her family to have children take a photo in their Christmas pajamas, so she ordered some online.
"Thursday I got an email from the store saying it was delivered and I did not receive it," Boliek said.
When she realized the package was stolen she got frustrated.
"I wanted to get my own, I guess, passive-aggressive revenge," Boliek said.
She taped up a box filled with 10 to 15 of her son's dirty diapers along with a note reading, "Enjoy this you thief!" and left it on the porch Sunday.
By Monday evening she said the box was gone.
How dirty were the diapers?
"Well, he's been sick the last week, so we'll just leave it at that," Boliek said. "It's pretty gross."
