When a woman in Arizona stole an Amazon package from outside a man's front door, he launched a neighborhood campaign to find her. Upon seeing security camera footage of the theft, Tim Lake of Phoenix printed posters dripping with sarcastic hilarity and featuring a series of photos of the woman stealing the package.

Lake even set up an email address for tips (yes, an AOL email address, which he says "is still cool") and included the police report number on the flier. He also sat for a staged interview and expressed the silliness of the theft with fake tears and a sardonic description of what life would be like if he had the contents of the package: k-cup coffee pods and ice trays. "I could have made iced coffee," Lake said.
